oofball tailgate parties, concerts and campus organizations gave 
students opportunities to share the common core ot K-State with each 
other regardless of where they lived, worked or studied. 

But in April the Manhattan-Junction City area shared information 
with the rest of the world. Following the bombing of the Alfred 
Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, investigators made 
connections to Timothy McVeigh, a former Fort Riley soldier living 

ts arrested for his part in the bombing that

Manhattan to be examined by Michael Finnegan, professor of social 
anthropology and social work. Finnegan and other scientists used 
bone and teeth fragments to verify that the body buried at Mount 
Olivet Cemetery in Kearney, Mo., was James. 

Students returned to school in the fall to discover the core of 
campus remained under construction. Farrell Library and the Mananna 
Kistler Beach Museum of Art construction continued to give them a 
common headache with even more closed parking lots and detours 
around the closed Mid Campus Drive. 

Construction may have made getting around campus a hassle but 
communication with each other was easier than ever. More than 
3,200 students started email/UNIX accounts in the first weeks of 
school, up from 200 accounts the previous year. 

Colleges and universities faced a possible .85-percent charge on 
federal loans to students in a bill sponsored by Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, 
R-Kan. Students formed a core of resistance against the proposal that 
could have caused a $382,000 charge to K-State students who received 
federal loans.

The University faced its own financial difficulties when enrollment 
figures fell to 20,476 — a drop of 188 students from last fall. The 
enrollment decrease meant a $986,000 cut in state funding for 1996, 
President Jon Wefald said in the State of the University address. 
Through the financial cuts, the common thread was that programs and 
financial aid could be in danger.

StudWWTathletes, coaches and the community 
core created in the memories of the highest ranked football team in 
school history. With the University of Kansas and K-State ranked in 
the top 10 nationally, the intrastate rivalry became stronger than ever. 

Meanwhile, students and alumni faced problems when police 
cracked down on alcohol at tailgate parties in the parking lots outside 
KSU Stadium. Parking patrols began confiscating alcohol from 
students and alumni after the second home game, removing the core 
of many tailgate parties. 

However, alcohol in the K-State Union became a common sight 
following a spring 1995 Union Governing Board decision allowing 
3.2 beer to be sold in Union Station and the recreation center. 

For the first time women were seen on the fourth floor of Marlatt 
Hall. The all-male residence hall provided temporary housing for 
more than 80 female students during renovations to the first and 
second floors of Goodnow Hall. In September the women moved 
from Marlatt to Moore and Ford halls for the remainder of the year. 

As the campus adjusted to the national spotlight, falling enrollment 
and different alcohol policies, students found a common core in a 
changing university and the end of an era. IF*

For the first time in school history, tailgaters had to leave their beer at 

After the second home football game, the University began enforcing 
a Kansas law prohibiting alcohol consumption on state property. 

"We were informed if we saw any party balls 
or kegs to notify our supervisor," Brian Neill, 
stadium parking director and junior in business 
administration, said. "If we see any open beer cans, 
we're supposed to tell them to put it in a cup." 

The K-State Police and the Riley County 
Police Department patrolled the parking lots 
looking for small containers. 

Ronnie Grice, campus police director, said 
fans were left alone if consumption was not 

Chris Ohm, senior in agricultural economics, 
and his friend, Lawrence Andre, K-State alumnus, 
said they were stopped at the gate and asked not to 
bring a keg into the parking lot. 

Andre said it was acceptable for police to keep 
kegs out of the lot because they encouraged 
excessive drinking, but he disagreed with banning 
all alcohol. 

"There's no way they can shut this down," 
Andre said. "We do it right. They should be proud 
of it." 

Ohm thought beer should have been available 
to buy at KSU Stadium. 

"I think that if students are allowed to drink 
beer in the Union, you should be able to drink here," he said. "Just think how 
much money they could make if they sold beer out here." 

Angie Riggs, junior in management, said the alcohol policy did not 
affect her. 

"I don't associate tailgating and drinking together," she said. "I've 
tailgated, but I never drank." 

Grice said the law banning alcohol had been around for years, but had 
not been aggressively enforced. Allowing alcohol in the lots had encouraged 
fans to attend games, he said. 

"We're not discouraging tailgating at all," Grice said. "You don't have 
to be full of spirits to be full of spirit for K-State football."

ater warriors 

Golden rays sparkled across the water as the sun began to 
rise. Suddenly, the roar of a boat engine shattered the 
silence as a skier emerged from the water. 

"I like to begin skiing at 6:30 a.m.," Travis Teichmann, ski 
team vice president and senior in construction science, said. 
"The recreational skiers are not around and it is quieter and 
easier to practice." 

Most members had never competed before joining the 
team, Travis Pape, ski team president and senior in milling 
science and management, said. 

"Most of them were recreational skiers," Pape said. "I would 
say probably about 80 percent." 

Inexperienced team members learned skills during practice. 

"There is a misconception about the ski team," Lori 
Wendling, ski team vice president and senior in pre-occupational 
therapy, said. "We learn while we are practicing with the team. " 

Dedication made the difference between recreational skiers 
and the 25-member team. 

"The recreational skier will ski as his body allows him to 
ski," Fred Gibbs, ski team adviser, said. "The competitive skier 
has to have correct position and form, and they have to make 
their body go how the course is set." 

During the summer individuals accumulated points at 
tournaments that counted toward team points at regional and 
state events, Teichmann said. 

The University, funded trips to regional and state team 
meets, but members paid their own entry fees for other 

Regardless of whether they competed in jump, trick or 
slalom events, team members shared a love for the sport. 

"Skiing is the best competitive sport," Teichmann said. "It 
is a serious sport that I give 110 percent to."

As smoke cleared from the gun, more than 150 students and 
. community members began a long and difficult journey. 

The Wildcat Sprint Triathlon, a swimming, cycling and 
running competition, raised $500 on Sept. 9 for the Manhattan 
Marlins Youth Swim Team. 

Dana Townsend, women's division winner and junior in 
dietetics, was in her fifth full season of triathlon competition. 

"You are actually training in three sports. It does take a 
tremendous time commitment," Townsend said. 

Running 25-30 miles, cycling 100 miles and swimming 
9,000-10,000 yards, Townsend averaged between 11 and 12 
hours per week training. 

"I probably enjoy the training the most, and you have to 
compete to train well," Townsend said. "I don't think you can 
do your best unless you race." 

Instead of participating in the triathlon, students could work 
as one of 60 volunteers, Alberto Delgado, race volunteer 
coordinator and associate professor in mathematics, said. 

"The volunteers were used to helping with timing, registra- 
tion, water stops, directing traffic, transition areas and race 
statistics," he said. 

Safety was a major concern of the coordinators. 

"The swim is one of the most dangerous parts because it is 
an open swim," Harvard Townsend, race coordinator and 
systems administrator in computing and information sciences, 
said. "The other danger is when the triathletes take corners on 
their bicycles." 

The competition attracted different types of people — some 
out for fun, others out for competition and experience. 

"It would be a great race for students to try," Dana 
Townsend said. "You put yourself on the line, and you will be 
tested. This will teach you something about yourself."

Docents, or trained tour guides, led tours down the trails of the Konza 

Dean Hargett, senior in history, was the only student out of about 25 
docents. He gave his first tour in September, but his first visit to the Konza 
Prairie was about 10 years ago. 

"My favorite part of the prairie is the hilltop," Hargett said. "There is a 
long climb to the top and you can see all to the south and out west to Fort 
Riley. When you reach the top it is magnificent with the wind blowing 
through your hair." 

The content of the tours depended on the age of the participants. 

"The tours are available lor any group," John Zimmerman, coordinator 
of the docent program and professor of biology, said. "There are tours for 
fourth and filth grades, high school students, college students or adults." 

Docents added information to the tours which were set up on an 
appointment basis, Hargett said. 

"There are quite a number of training hikes with the docent program. 
We familiarize ourselves with the prairie by reading about and listening to the 
experienced docents," he said. 

Becky Burton, graduate student in biology, said she became interested 
after volunteering. 

"I volunteer for the burning. Myjob is I run the drip torch lor the fire," 
Burton said. "It is a good experience to help out and feel more connected to 
what's going on in the area." 

College-level tours focused on plant species and experiments. 

"We have 8,600 acres with 60 different units all subjected to burn units," 
David Hartnet, director of the Konza Prairie, said. "The whole purpose is to 
study the effects from the fire on ecology, different species and the effects of 
burning vegetation." 

Students worked on the Konza Prairie and gained hands-on experience 
through research projects. 

"My research is on the aquatic system through the streams, ponds and 
ground water," Ken Fritz, graduate in biology, said. "It is definitely 

Hargett shared his knowledge about the Konza Prairie and the experiments 
with other students he encountered during tours. 

"I like getting other people out there and helping them know about the 
prairie instead of just watching it as they drive past," he said.

Bands from Manhattan and Lawrence smudged out Dr. 
Crusty in the annual OPUS 9 Band Competition. 
Smudge, a Manhattan band, and 425 Main, a Lawrence 
band, tied for first place. Dr. Crusty, from Topeka, placed 
second in the contest sponsored by Union Program Council. 
The competition became controversial when bands from 
other cities were allowed to compete. 

Only two of the seven bands invited 
by the UPC Eclectic Entertainment Com- 
mittee were from Manhattan. 

"It kind of made me mad because (the 
advertising) made it sound like it was a K- 
State type thing," Jason Barth, junior in 
pre-health professions, said. 

The advertising was not misleading, 

John Sandlin, UPC program adviser, said. 

"In all of our advertising the only 

stipulation was that it's an unsigned band, " 

he said. 

Cold weather caused the event to 
relocate from the free speech zone outside the K-State Student 
Union to the Union Ballroom. 

The relocation caused the attendance of 300 to be less than 
last year's, Sandlin said. 

"I think the student committee did a really good job setting 
it up," he said. "Any K-State student could have come and 
listened to some really good music and had a good time." 

Members of Smudge were surprised they 'won. The band 
agreed that creating original music was their main interest. 

"I don't think any of us are in it for the money," Chad 
Mercer, backing vocals and bass for Smudge, said. "If we were 
in it for the money, we would have all quit a long time ago."

He remembered flying a toy airplane around his 
grandmother's house. 

Since he was a child, Mike DiDio, senior in electrical 
engineering, had dreamed of earning his pilot's license and 
becoming a fighter pilot. 

"Being a fighter pilot is very glamorized. After I earn my 
pilot's license, I plan on going to Air Force flight school," he 
said. "After dreaming about flying for so long, I'm glad I really 
do like to do it." 

DiDio began working on his license in May 1995 and 
planned to complete it in March 1996. 

Lauren Urich, flight instructor for the Kansas Air Center in 
Manhattan, said there was no set time schedule for earning a 
pilot's license. 

"How long it takes really depends on the student. It usually 
takes people anywhere from two and a half months to nine 
months, although it has taken some people more than a year," 
Urich said. "It just depends on how much they're willing to put 
into it." 

Flight students had to pass a written test from the Federal 
Aviation Administration before beginning 40 hours of required 
flight time. Following training, they had to take a private pilot 
practical test, Urich said. 

While training for his license, DiDio piloted a Cessna 150, 
the most common plane used for flight training. Because of its 
light composition, the two-seater plane was easily blown around 
by the wind. 

Although he never became ill while piloting, DiDio said 
flying as a passenger was a different story. 

"This summer in New Mexico, I was in an F- 1 1 1 . We were 
500 feet off the ground going about 650 mph, doing evasive

maneuvers," he said. "We were pulling a lot of Gs and the pilot 
cracked it hard. I got sick, so we raised up for a little bit and then 
went back down again." 

The dangers of flying and possiblities of accidents sometimes 
worried DiDio. 

"When I'm with my instructor, if anything went wrong, he 
could always bring us to safety," he said. 

Flying solo lacked the safety net an instructor provided. 

"Soloing is a great feeling, and I'm really relaxed. But if I 
screw up now, I'm history," DiDio said. "If you don't screw up 
too bad, a fatality probably won't happen. Accidents only 
happen for two reasons: you screw up or the aircraft screws up, 
and you can control one of those." 

Landing was often a terrifying experience for new pilots, 
Mike Spicer, DiDio's flight instructor, said. 

"When they see the ground rushing up at them, they have 
to be pretty close to just right," he said. 

DiDio said learning to land usually took between 10 and 12 
hours of practice. 

"I was really nervous the first time I landed solo, but I was 
concentrating so hard that I forgot about my nervousness," he 
said. "After I landed the plane and the controls were all sweaty, 
I just leaned back and took a deep breath." 

DiDio said although flying made him nervous, he enjoyed 
the challenges it brought. 

"Being in the air is totally different from being on the 
ground," he said. "Before flying, I always liked the idea of it, but 
now that I'm flying, I just love it."

growing up with a sense of belonging 

touching the lives of children 

e Initio* 


Despite a plane delay and protesters, U.S. Attorney General 
Janet Reno delivered the 103rd Landon Lecture. 
About 3,750 people attended Reno's Oct. 24 speech at 
Bramlage Coliseum and about a dozen supporters of Fred Phelps, 
Topeka resident, protested the event. 

James Hockenburger, Topeka 
resident, said he wanted to warn people 
about Reno's acceptance of homosexuals. 
"All people should be treated equal," 
Hockenburger said. "But, I need to warn 
the country that our leaders are promoting 

The speech focused on helping 

children grow up with a sense ofbelonging. 

"We can all touch the lives of our 

children and give them a sense of 

community," Reno said. 

Her focus on children bothered 
students who expected a collegiate topic. 
"She is very well-educated, but she 
could have chosen a better topic that was 
more related to the students," Debbie 
Myers, junior in interior design, said. 

Reno suggested helping children by 
supporting community policing. 

"The community needs to make a 
connection with the young people and 
work together as a community to be 
competitive in the future," Reno said. 
Keeping children in school and 
preparing them for work were important, Reno said. 

"Raising children is the hardest thing that I know of," she 
said. "Being attorney general has been great, but nothing can 
compare if you can reach out to a child."

black bead necklace, symbolizing spirits and protection during 
travel, dangled around Shante Moore's neck as he walked to 

The beads were given to him by a family he met in Paraguay, 
where he traveled as a team member in the Community Service 

In summer 1994, Moore, senior in political science, spent eight 
weeks in Paraguay as an International Service Team member through 
the Community Service Program. 

As member of the program, Moore received a scholarship and a 
living stipend for serving on the teams. 

Moore joined other team members in organizing a new market 
for local farmers to sell their goods. 

"The previous market had been closed for 37 years," Moore said. 
"My team got them started again." 

During summer 1995, he spent seven weeks in Pune, India, 
carrying out service projects and looking for service opportunities for 
students overseas. 

Moore and his partner, Brian Becker, senior in fisheries and 
wildlife biology, were the first team to go to India. 

In India, the partners did structural improvements to a low- 
income housing area and Indian service organizations asked them for 
help with local projects. 

"Our project was to look at slums and to make suggestions for 
improvements," Moore said. "We were the guinea pig team." 

He gained a new perspective through the trips. 

"Both of my trips made me open my eyes," Moore said. "It was 
an attitude check for me to get more involved. Now I wonder, why 
can't I get involved in my own community?" 

When his grandmother became ill, Moore had to leave India 
early. He said he still felt he gained something worthwhile from the 
experience and time he shared with the people in Paraguay. 

"I have stronger connections to my family now, something that 
I picked up on in Paraguay," Moore said. "Besides, this is the most 
cost-efficient way to travel."

working with the abused and neglec 

volunteering helps the system work 

voicing the concerns o 

f child 

r e n 



\ , mall voices often had difficulty speaking up for their rights, 
k^P but students helped those voices be heard. 

Concerned students became Court Appointed Special 
Advocates. CASA, a national organization, assigned volunteers 
to court cases involving neglected, abused or delinquent juveniles. 
The volunteers investigated the cases and made recommendations 
in the child's interest. 

"Child abuse is more of a problem than people realize," 
Karen Ruckert, CASA volunteer and sophomore in pre-law, 
said. "I think I was sheltered from the problem and didn't realize 
how widespread it is." 

There were no specific qualifications to be a volunteer, but 
personality characteristics such as sensitivity, awareness, objectivity 
and cooperation with the court system were important, Melanie 
Brockington, executive director of CASA, said. 

According to the 1995 Kansas Kid Count Data Book, there 
were 438 reported child abuse and neglect cases and 27 confirmed 
cases in Riley County last year. 

"Children are the littlest victims," Tammy Hoots, CASA 
volunteer and senior in family life and community services, said. 
"And I've never understood what a child would ever do to cause 
anyone to hit or abuse them sexually or physically." 

Of the 50 CASA volunteers, half were students. These 
volunteers interviewed parents, teachers and siblings. 

"We spend time with them (the children) so they get to trust 
us," Ruckert said. "We want to build a rapport with them so we 
understand where they are coming from." 

The most rewarding aspect of volunteering was seeing the 
family change, Hoots said. 

"After I've worked on a case awhile it's nice to walk into a 
room and have the children run up and give me a hug, and to 
have the parents accept me and realize that I'm not trying to 
separate the family," Hoots said. "Seeing the children and 
parents change makes you feel you've made a difference."

hree roommates became helping hands for international 
JL students struggling with a foreign language and culture. 

Adrienne Dimmitt, sophomore in milling science and man- 
agement, read about the Conversational English Program and 
persuaded her roommates to become involved. The program 
matched American students with international students who 
were uncomfortable with English. 

"We can all remind each other to get together," Erin 
Bowersox, sophomore in pre-health professions, said. "I can 
experience three different cultures as opposed to one, all at the 
same time." 

Students attended events, like an international Halloween 
party, and did activities in pairs, such as going out for yogurt. 

"I think it is fun," Phouvieng Khounthasenh, freshman in 
pre-health professions, said. "It is kind of like having a family 
away from home, because we do a lot of things together." 

Reasons for students' involvement in the program varied. 

"I wanted to make a new friend," Ming-Fen Tsai, junior in 
hotel and restaurant management, said. "I wanted to improve 
my conversation." 

Bowersox said she was interested in other countries. 

"I've gained knowledge of a new culture, a new friend and 
somebody to spend time with," she said. 

Dimmitt helped her partner, Dong Chen, graduate student 
in computer science, prepare to retake the Test of Spoken 
English, which she had to pass to become a graduate teaching 

"Once we read Cosmo," Dimmitt said. "It was kind of 
funny because we read about ATM machines and we read about 
where to find guys." 

Dimmitt said being involved in the program was rewarding. 

"It's a great program," she said. "It really opens your eyes. 
It keeps you aware of things outside of Manhattan. It's such a big 
world out there."

in remembrance of her brother 


hen she crossed the finish line of the 1995 New York 
City Marathon, her brother's spirit was with her. 

"I am starting to realize how close he was to me," Nicole 
Nelson, sophomore in dietetics, said. "I thought of my family. 
This meant so much to my family as a whole, and my brother 
is part of my family. It was great to have had such a wonderful 

Nelson's brother, Wayne, died of leukemia when she was 
13-years-old and he was 17-years-old. 

"He seemed old, but now that I think back, he wasn't," 
Nelson said. "It's (running in the marathon) probably been 
therapeutic. It's helped me sort through things, and it has meant 
a lot to my family." 

After Wayne died, the Leukemia Society of America acci- 
dentally sent him information about Team-In-Training, a fund- 
raiser for the Leukemia Society of America that paired runners 
with individuals who had leukemia. 

Although the information had been addressed to Wayne, 
Nicole became fascinated with the program. 

"The patient you run in honor of helps motivate you," 
Nelson said. "It gives you a more personal relationship and gives 
the patient motivation." 

When Nelson decided to participate in the program, she had 
limited track experience. 

"I ran in high school, but I wasn't that good," she said. "I 
thought if I ran for Wayne it would give me more determination 
and make up for the lack of talent." 

The Leukemia Society assigned Nelson a 7-year-old boy, 
Loren Edgar, to be her honored patient. Edgar was diagnosed 
with leukemia when he was 18-months-old. 

"He is great about it, and his morale is super," Nelson said. 
"You could talk to him for hours and he wouldn't bring it up."

As part of their fund-raising campaign, Nelson and Edgar 
visited fraternities and sororities asking for donations to pay the 
$3,000 race entry fee. Nelson began crying as they were leaving 
one of the houses. 

"He gave me a hug and the next minute he was asking what's

When she completed the New York 
City Marathon, Nelson said she ran all 26 
miles for her brother, who had taught her 
to go the extra mile. 

Race preparations and fund-raising efforts helped her come 
to terms with her brother's death but she also learned many 
things about herself. 

"It has been a very emotional thing to do. Sometimes it has 
been flat-out frustrating," she said. "It's taught me a lot about 
how much you can do if you set your mind to something. You 
can accomplish things that are seemingly impossible." 

The Leukemia Society gave each runner a uniform to wear 
during the race. On the back of her uniform, Nelson had "K- 
State" and cross-stitched the message carved on her brother's 

"In the corner I cross-stitched 'Together forever,' because 
that just says it all," she said. "We know we will see him again."

church group rents "party house" 


When large groups met at a former "party house," Bibles 
were being passed around instead of beer. 

"I was pretty much disappointed. We felt it was a shame," 
Dirck Dekeyser, senior in pre-optometry and former resident of 
the house, said. "It's good the campus ministries are there, but 
I was still really disappointed we weren't asked back because we 
were having a lot of good times there." 

Dekeyser and his roommates were forced to find new 
housing arrangements when the owner decided to rent the 
house, located at the corner of Denison and Anderson avenues, 
to Lutheran Campus Ministries. 

The group began renting in summer 1995 and hoped to buy 
the house in spring 1996, Rev. Jayne Thompson said. 

Although the former renters did not attended Lutheran 
Campus Ministries functions, they noticed the exterior changes. 

"The strangest thing to me, is it is clean. The porch is nice 
and painted and there are rocking chairs there," Dekeyser said. 
"It doesn't even seem like the same house now, because 
everything is so neat and prissy." 

The house, which three peer ministers lived in, had an open- 
door policy. The ministers met Thursdays and lead Bible studies. 

Remodeling the party house was a time-consuming chore. 

"We have done a lot and we'll do some more," Jerry Weis, 
professor of biology and faculty sponsor/chairman of the 
Lutheran Campus Ministries board, said. "But there weren't 
gaping holes in the walls or gallons of beer in the closets." 

The group was not attracted to the house because of its 

"We were not planning to hunt down a party house," 
Richard Lissitschenko, graduate student in curriculum and 
instruction, said. "God works in mysterious ways. We finally 
found a house."

beer sales not as lucrative as forcasted 

rinking without the hassle of a bar 

recreation area not affected by sales 

'" : ■ ""'- ' "| f| 

After a year-long debate, bowlers, card sharks and billiard 
players could finally buy beer in the K-State Student Union. 

However, beer sales were lower than the Union Governing 
Board's yearly estimates of $100,000 to $175,000 given in spring 
1995 when the decision was being made to allow beer in the 

"Those estimates were very exaggerated," Jack Sills, Union 
director, said. "They were unaware of the actual costs involved 
in getting it all set up." 

Terri Eddy, Union recreation manager, said original costs 
included insurance, licensing and being audited. He estimated 
the recreation area sold between $1 ,000 and $2,000 in alcoholic 
beverages a month. 

"We still have hopes of breaking even," Sills said. "It just 
won't be as lucrative as it was originally thought." 

One target audience for alcohol sales was league bowlers. 

"All in all, out of the 1 1 or so teams we play against, there's 
probably only one team that goes and drinks while they bowl," 
Luke Folscroft, league bowler and junior in political science, 
said. "It just never has become a factor for us when we bowl, but 
it doesn't bother me that it's down there." 

Chris Hartley, sophomore in arts and sciences, said he 
approved of having alcohol in the Union. 

"I've seen a few people drink in here and I don't mind it," 
Hartley said. "It's cool that they're flexible enough to allow it in 

Eddy said the availability of alcohol had little effect on the 
recreational area. 

"It doesn't smell like a bar and we don't have the hassles of 
a bar," Eddy said. "If people want to get drunk, they'll go to the 
bars in Aggieville, but if they want to play pool or bowl, they can 
come here without the hassles of a bar."

beer came all sorts of signs — from 
neon to the liquor license. Security 
measures, such as signs and checking 
identification were implemented to 
prevent underage drinking. Alcohol in 
the Union was not as profitable as 
predicted. The beer made between 
$1,000 and $2,000 a month as opposed 
to the estmated $175,000 a year. Jack

were exaggerated. (Photo by Shane

players compete tor the winning goa 

sion of the courts once a week 



Id tires lined the seldom-used tennis courts behind 

Manhattan Middle School. Once a week, street hockey 

invaded the courts which had chipped and fading white lines. 

Of the 1 1 people who arrived to play, one was sidelined 

before the game because of an injury. After a quick warm-up, 

the game began. 

"There's always the same number of people — a core group 

— who come out and play," Chris DiGregorio, senior in art 

en j- therapy, said. "Other people come in and 

out. It's great to get 15 people out here 

because it is so much more tun." 

The street hockey group began three 
years ago when students in the psychology 
department and the College of Veterinary 
Medicine started playing the game as a 
tension reliever. 

"I'm a vet student and I spend six or 
seven days a week in school and it feels 
good to have fun and run around for a 
couple of hours," Dean Elder, third-year 
veterinary science student, said. 

The running portion of the game had 
other advantages. 
"It's a great workout and it's a nice break from the mo- 
notony of school," Jeff Daniels, third-year veterinary science 
student, said. 

For some of the players, street hockey gave them a 
chance to play something similar to another sport they loved — 
ice hockey. 

"I've always loved the game of hockey," Loren Schultz, 
third-year veterinary science student, said. "Seeing as it doesn't

Soap operas became an obsession for students who gathered

romance was steamy and no one went to work or had problems.

the way it is," Julie Whited, sophomore in hotel and restaurant

whole sense of reality about the way life is becomes distorted."

"The Yankee camp was different. I started getting cat calls 
and one guy used a rifle butt to lift my dress," she said. 

Due to the size of Shaneyfelt' s dress, the incident did not 
reveal much. Her dress hoops measured more than 90 inches 
around and weighed more than 40 pounds. 

"I always liked playing dress-up, but now my dresses have 
gotten bigger and more expensive. (Re-enacting) can put you 
in the hole easily," Shaneyfelt said. "However, it pays off in an 
educational value." 

She shared that education with elementary students when 
she lectured about women's roles on the plantations. 

"All too often people don't realize that we didn't just sit 
around sipping lemonade and fanning ourselves," Shaneyfelt 
said. "The women on the plantation weren't as weak as people 
think they were."

Using a vintage sewing machine 

bought at Grandma's Trunk several 

years ago, Shaneyfelt, reflected in a 

full-size mirror, works on a friend's 

Halloween costume. Shaneyfelt used 

her costuming skills to design her 

pageant dress as well as clothing for 

re-enactments. Her civil war-era 

clothing cost her anywhere between 

$7 and $130 for base materials 

alone. Fabric, dresses, petticoats and 

theater-related knick-knacks 

cluttered Shaneyfelt's bedroom 

located in her parents' basement.

Called at the last minute for an 
audition at the Manhattan Civic 
Theater, Shaneyfelt reads lines from 
the play "The Gift of the Magi" with 
Kay Deever, senior in English 
literature. "I was so excited when 
they called me. My dad reads this 
every Christmas (for our family). I 
really hope I get a part," Shaneyfelt 
said following the audition. She 
received a role as a narrator in the 
production. Re-enacting a character 
from her past during Civil War re- 
enactments allowed Shaneyfelt to 
practice her acting skills. "With true 
re-enactors, you have to be 
yourself," she said. "I just put 
myself in my grandma's shoes."

hoops," she said. "It just doesn't work at all." 

While she might not have been able to drive in the clothes, parts of her 
costumes could be worn to class. 

"I've worn the clothing to school before, especially during the winter," 
Shaneyfelt said. "The students think I'm weird, but at least I'm not cold." 

She had other reasons for wearing clothing. 

"Call it backfire re-incarnation or one too many reruns of 'Little House 
on the Prairie,' I just like 
wearing the clothing," she said. 

For one night in October, 
Shaneyfelt forgot about her 
Civil War-era clothing and 
switched her name. Christine 
became Alicia as she slipped 
into the evening wear 
competition of the 39th annual 
Miss Manhattan/K-State 
Scholarship Pageant. 

"I use two different names 
to represent myself with, when 
I compete in pageants and 
when I act," she said. "They 
represent different aspects of 
my abilities." 

Shaneyfelt competed 
against six other women, but 
was the only one to walk away 
with the tiara and the chance 
to represent the Manhattan area 
in the Miss Kansas pageant. 

"I just got lucky, and it was 
my time to shine, and through 
the grace of God it finally 
happened," Shaneyfelt said. "I felt really calm, not that I wasn't anxious or 
nervous, but I had this really weird feeling. 

"When they said I had won, I didn't move," she said. "I had my eyes 
closed, and someone was telling me to come up and get my crown when 
one of my best friends tackled me to tell me congratulations."

The Rasmussen twins, Corey and Todd, shared more than just common blood 
as they attended college. Dana Pinkston carried on a family tradition that was 
started by her great-grandfather, Charles Johnston, pictured outside Anderson 
Hall. Jeremy and Alexander Cooper divided much of their mother Michelle's time 
while she was trying to finish school. Remaining close and finishing school were 
also on the minds of three members of the Oplinger family. On their wedding 
day, faculty members David Kamerer and Lori Bergen, begin their journey back 
to K-State.

dent back to school after a 25-year absence. 

Barbara Oplinger, junior in social work, came to K-State after 
helping her husband, roger, raise their children and work on the 

family farm. 

Not only did Barbara return to school while 
raising a family, two of her daughters, Ky and 
Kory, were her peers. 

"It wasn't planned, it just happened that 
way," Ky, sophomore in pre-health professions, 

Like their mother, Kory, junior in journalism 
and mass communications, and Ky transferred 
from community colleges. 

"I always wanted to come here," Kory said. 
"Dad always brought us to K-State for the games 
and productions since he was from here, and I 
liked the journalism and mass communications 
school and had heard so much about it." 

While at school, Barbara lived in Riley with 
her three other children who attended middle and 
high school. Ky and Kory lived in Manhattan, 
although in different locations. 

"We've gotten a lot closer because we all live 
closer together," Kory said. "As for my younger 
brothers and sisters, I can call them up on the 

weekends and I can actually go to see Dad when 
he comes up trom Jewell." 

Roger, a K-State alumnus, maintained the 
farm in Jewell and visited Manhattan on week- 

Adjusting to life without her husband nearby 
was difficult for Barbara. 

"Now for the first time, I'm facing issues by 
myself because my husband is not here with 
me," she said. 

When her younger children were around, 
Barbara's role changed from student to parent. 
She waited to study until the children were in bed 
or before they woke up. 

"I concentrate on them. I'm Mom then," 
Barbara said. "I try not to make my needs known 
to them or disrupt their lives. We've got to 
support one another." 

Adjusting to the changing family structure 
gave one daughter a new look at her parents. 

"I am so proud of my mom and I am so happy 
that Dad was able to adjust to it all,"Kory said.

Towers. Corey and Todd wanted to establish their individual identities by

.n the fifth grade, corey and todd rasmussen switched places. 
"i wish we would have done it more," todd, junior in pre- 
medicine, said. "our friends thought it was all giggly and fun stuff. 
It was just sort of a 'twin thing."' 

Although they never switched places at K- 
State, students still confused Corey, junior in 
finance, and Todd. 

"There have been times when people have 
come up to me and I have no clue who they are," 
Corey said. "I just try to be polite and say 'I think 
you must know my brother, Todd.'" 

In spite of their physical similarities, the twins 
said they had contrasting personalities. 

"Corey is more outgoing and more social 
than I am," Todd said. "He is more energetic in 
meeting new people and in getting to know them. 
I am not that way. I usually just sit back." 

The twins were not the first in their family to 
attend K-State. Eric, a 1994 K-State graduate m 
mechanical engineering, played an important role 
in the twins' decision of what college to attend. 

"Since I always came up to see him, my older 
brother played a major part in me coming to 
school at K-State," Todd said. "I remember my 

brother always commenting on how much he 
loved it here at K-State." 

Like Eric, the twins joined Delta Chi frater- 
nity. Todd became president of the fraternity. 

Being twins gave Todd and Corey advan- 

"I meet people through my brother and my 
brother meets people through me," Todd said. 

The brothers liked being involved in the same 
activities and living near each other. 

"We have lived in the same general area all the 
years we have been up here," said Corey. "It 
works out nice since Todd is stealing my stuff all 
the time." 

The twins lived in the same apartment com- 
plex, although in different apartments. 

"My parents wanted us to be together," Todd 
said. "This way we are able to see each other all the 
time and are still able to get away from each other 
when we need to."

Following in the footsteps of her mother and grandfather, Dana Pinkston,

Dana, assistant professor in theater and a 
costume designer, had a lot to live up to. Her 
grandfather, Charles Johnston, taught in the agri- 
culture department and Dana's mother, was a 
dairy science faculty member. 

Dana had not planned on being a third gen- 
eration faculty member. 

"It had not been a goal," she said. "I honestly 
thought I would never come back." 

Mother and daughter had rocky educational 
experiences. Both dropped out of K-State and 
later returned to become faculty members. 

Following her mother's death and a disap- 
pointing academic start, Dana dropped out of 
school. She later returned to earn bachelor's and 
master's degrees in theater. 

"It was hard coming back," she said. "Every- 


one seemed young and spoiled. You want to tell 
them all to quit fooling around and be serious. 
You also realize you know more than you think 
you know." 

Phyllis dropped out of college to become a 
wife and mother when she met Dana's tather. 
After his death, Phyllis was forced to return to 

Losing both parents made theater especially 
important for Dana. 

"The nice thing about theater is it becomes an 
extended family," she said. "It's like working with 
your family." 

Dana accepted a faculty position in fall 1994. 

"It felt like coming home. K-State has always 
been a part of my life," she said. "I felt like I was 
upholding a family tradition."

urple pride ran deep for the laurie family. 
Mike Lauriejunior in civil engineering, and his dad, David Laurie 
jr., professor of secondary education, tried to meet once a week to 


"He usually picks me up for lunch on Tues- 
days to play handball or racquetball. It's neat that 
we both have something in common," Mike said. 
"I like having him here because most people don't 
get that opportunity, and the free lunch is nice." 

The Laurie's tie to K-State was a strong one. 
Mike's two brothers, Matt and Mark, and his 
mother, Claudette, graduated from K-State. 

David's two brothers and father also attended 
the University. 

David said his sons never felt pressure to 
continue the family tradition. 

"We told them to go anywhere," David said. 
"We just wanted them to go to college no matter 
what they wanted to do." 

Friends and strong family ties helped Mike 
make the decision to come to K-State. 

"It was an easy choice," Mike said. "All my 
family has come here, and many of my friends 
were here. I'd heard a lot of stories about K-State 

from my older brothers, and I was comfortable and 
familiar here." 

David said it wasn't family ties that brought 
him to the campus. It was football. 

"Football was the most important reason I 
came to K-State," David said. "I was assured that 
I could start as a sophomore, and that really 
influenced me." 

After five concussions and temporary eyesight 
loss, David was forced to quit playing football after 
his third year. 

He ended up teaching graduate level educa- 
tion classes and coaching and officiating for foot- 
ball and basketball. 

Although Mike hasn't yet taken a class from 
his dad, he heard about them from his friends. 

"They like his classes, and they get to hear 
stories about me. Dad's pretty obnoxious some- 
times, and I think he probably likes to give them 
a hard time in class," Mike said.

wo faculty members had nightly rendezvous with beethoven and 
Bach. Lori Bergen, associate professor in print journalism, and 
David Kamerer, associate professor in electronic media, attended K- 
State in the early 1980s and co-hosted a program called "Summer 

Classics" on KSDB-FM 91.9. 

"During the summer they were wanting to 
try some other things," Bergen said. "We just 
thought it would be nice to have sort of a dinner 
hour classical music." 

Bergen and Kamerer met in a UFM class. 
After dating for three years, they were married in 
November 1983. 

When positions opened at K-State it was no 
surprise that Bergen and Kamerer accepted them. 

Like Bergen's mother, father and brother, 
they had both received degrees from K-State. 
However, Kamerer was the first K-State graduate 
in his family. 

"The school really wrapped its arms around 
me. It's a very nice environment," he said. "I've 
always stayed close to K-State and when I had the 
chance to come back, I was thrilled, especially 
when we were able to make it work out." 

Even their 4-year-old daughter, Anna, was a 

student at the KSU Child Development Center. 

"She's been there since she was three," 
Bergen said, "Anna's probably the youngest in 
my family to go to K-State." 

Despite being surrounded by her family, 
Bergen said it was strange teaching at her alma 

"It's kind of interesting because I have had 
students who have professors that I had when I was 
an undergraduate," Bergen said. "But the oddest 
thing about being here is that I'm (teaching) in the 
same classrooms I used to sit in." 

On campus, Bergen and Kamerer did not see 
each other more than if they had worked at 
separate places. 

"I work in a different building, and we work 
in different areas even though we're in the same 
department," Kamerer said. "She goes into her 
black hole everyday just like she works some- 
where else and I do the same."

While her sons, Alexander and Jeremy, were learning in the KSU Child 
Development Center and her husband, Jeff, was at work, Michelle Cooper, junior 
in English, studied in the K-State Student Union. Between working and 
studying, Cooper had to make time to spend with her children and husband.

aoys scattered from one end of the room to the other. late for 
work. An essay due tomorrow. 

For Michelle Cooper, junior in English, obtaining a college 
education was anything but easy and convenient. 

"Most college kids' greatest worry is what bar 
they're going to hit that night," Cooper said. "I 
have to worry about and focus on my kids, 
husband, bills and work." 

When she woke at 6 a.m., Cooper spent a 
few minutes with her sons, Jeremy, 5, and 
Alexander, 2, before dropping them off at the 
KSU Child Development Center. 

"I chose to take the kids to KSUCDC be- 
cause I wanted them to be in an environment I 
knew was licensed, safe and conducive to learn- 
ing," Cooper said. 

She found it convenient having her sons near. 

"I wanted them close by so that if something 
happened I would be right there," she said. "I also 
wanted them near me so that if I wanted to see 
them or go eat lunch with them, they would be 
close enough so that I could do that." 

In January 1994, the Coopers moved to Man- 
hattan, and Cooper became a full-time student. 

"We've all been through a lot of adjustments 
in the last year and it has changed the focus of 
everything," she said. 

Because of her demanding schedule, she was 
not able to spend as much time as she wanted with 
her sons. 

Cooper worked as a telemarketer tor Olan 
Mills in the evenings and then did homework at 
night after her sons went to bed. 

"The level of responsibility is enormous," she 
said. "It is very taxing, very exhausting. I function 
on little sleep." 

The struggles of studying, working 24 hours 
a week and raising children were worth it for 
Cooper when she considered the future. 

"It will be worth it when I can bring home 
a paycheck to ensure that my children will get a 
college education and everything they need," she 
said. "I have to remind myself of that when I get 
really frustrated."

swayed to the music and passed people above their heads 
in the traditional concert style. 

Soul Asylum and Matthew Sweet entertained an audience of 
about 1 ,200 on Oct. 2 at Bramlage Coliseum. The concert was 
sponsored by Union Programming Council. 

"We took a shot and it didn't succeed," Sarah Hadley,

She estimated the actual loss was be-

Several factors contributed to the low 

Patrick Carney, UPC president and 
senior in political science, said low atten- 
dance was partially due to scheduling the 
concert on a Monday, the tour suffering 
nationally and students being picky. 

Students wanted an alternative music 
scene, but many didn't like Soul Asylum, 
Carney said. 

"They need to think of it as more 
than Soul Asylum," he said. "If bands do 
poorly there will be no alternative music 

If the concert was to succeed, UPC would have sold more 
tickets during the first selling week, Meri Sias, UPC member and 
junior in park resources management, said. 

"We only sold around 400 to 500 tickets in the first two 
weeks before the concert," she said. 

UPC spent about $4,000 on advertising and gave away 
about 160 tickets the day of the concert. 

Regardless of the efforts, fans were disappointed with the

While some students claimed to have spent enough 
money in Aggieville to own stock in the bars, one 
student had the paperwork to prove it. 

Tyler Olson, senior in marketing, was a co-owner of 12th 
Street Pub. 

When the bar opened Aug. 21, Olson worked an average 
of 80 hours a week. 

"I was training waitresses and bartenders, so I wanted to 
be there a lot to help them," he said. "I am working a lot less 
now and things are going smoothly." 

Olson and a high school friend, Mike Robinson, Emporia 
State University graduate, first looked into opening a bar 
together after Kite's Bar and Grille closed in 1994. 

"We wanted our bar to reflect a little of the Kite's tradi- 
tion," Robinson said. "To do that we put up the kind of 
pictures Kite's had and we also put up the (greek) paddles." 

Students said 12th Street had a comfortable atmosphere. 

"I like it because it is a sit-down, relaxing, Cheers-type 
bar," Katie Linden, sophomore in pre-law, said. "It's a good 
bar for people who like to just sit down and enjoy their

During his senior year at Emporia State, Robinson was part 
owner of a bar called Kokomo's. Although 12th Street was 
the first bar Olson had owned, he was familiar with the 

"I've basically grown up in the bars in Aggieville," Olson 
said. "I have worked as a bartender too, but owning my own

Both owners thought the bar was successful, but Olson 
said he was not thinking too far into the future. 

"I might like to buy my mother's part of the business 
eventually, but right now I have to finish my research paper, 
so I'm trying not to worry about too much else," he said.

students protest with posters and chalk 

student senators find alternatives 

eighten debate 

Not many students thought much about Title IX, but by 
February, it had become a hot topic of discussion. 

Title IX of the Higher Education Act of 1972 required all 
schools to provide equitable opportunities for women and men. 
For K-State to conform, money had to be generated to bring 
women's sports into compliance with the regulation. 

"It's not a student problem. It's an athletic problem," Brad 
Finkeldei, student body vice president and senior in chemical 
engineering, said. 

Controversy began when the athletic department proposed 
a student fee increase, changing the athletic fee ol $17 to $34. 

Students opposing the increase rallied in the freespeech zone 
Feb. 7. 

"Don't get me wrong, I'm for Title IX," Jennifer Higerd, 
junior in political science, said. "But I don't think students 
should have to pay for something like this. Finding money 
should be the responsibility of the administration." 

Negotiations between the administration and a team of six 
student representatives began Feb. 6 and by Feb. 7, a compro- 
mise had been reached. 

"We all agreed we need to get the money, and we're not 
going to have a fee increase, so Max (Urick), do whatever you 
have to to raise the money," Finkeldei said. 

The athletic fee continuance bill was voted on in the Feb. 8 
Senate meeting. With amendments allowing the athletic depart- 
ment to raise student ticket prices and change concession sales 
to raise revenue, the bill passed 42-11. 

Greg McLean, ICAT president and junior in journalism and 
mass communications, said students weren't afraid to share their 
opinions about Title IX. 

"I was impressed with the way students got involved with 
this, either for or against the increase," he said. "People called 
their senators for the first time and got involved."

After seeing how successful the previous year's Japanese 
massage class was, UFM offered a self-massage class Oct. 24 
and Jan. 27 and a couples-massage class Nov. 28, Dec. 5, March 
19 and March 26. 

"The first semester the class was offered, it filled in three 
days," Linda Teener, UFM director, said. "The class was a 
different, popular class because people were interested in 
proper techniques and different kinds of massages. They were 
interested in finding ways to relax and relieve stress." 

The Jan. 27 self-massage class, which taught basic techniques, 
was attended by four people. 

"We learned when to do a massage and when not to," Jessica 
Morgan, third-year student in veterinary medicine, said. "After 
an injury, you should not have a massage." 

Bernice Martin, UFM instructor and certified massage 
therapist, said she wanted others to learn the importance of 
correct massage methods. She began teaching the UFM classes 
in the fall. 

Massages were important for college students because they 
helped relieve stress and consequently, improve health, Martin 

"When you are relaxed you can be more focused," she said. 
"The more focused you are when studying, (the easier) you can 
learn what you are learning and not be distracted." 

The basic strokes included effleurage, a gliding motion; 
petrissage, a kneading method; and tapotement, a stimulating 

"We are very deprived of touching in this country and it's a 
fundamental need for growth and development," Martin said.

W*# setting a new single-day attendance record at the Chester E. 
Peters Recreation Complex. 

"First of all, it's their New Year's 
resolutions," Jessica Lange, building 
supervisor and junior in secondary 
education, said. "Everybody is working 
out for spring break." 

On Jan. 22, the spring semester's first 
day of classes, the Rec Complex was used 
by 4,153 people during the 18 hours it 
was open, Derek Walters, facility 
manager, said. 

On the first day of classes last spring, 
the complex had only 2,547 users, he 

The increase in use wasn't a one-day 
phenomena, Walters said. 

In 1994, use of the complex rose 29 
percent, totaling 60,425 visits for the 
year. However, total visits to the rec 
increased to 210,085 in 1995. 

The popularity of the complex caused 
some students to wait for equipment. 
"Half of the time there's not enough 
steps for everyone," Kelly Hawthorne, freshman in business 
administration, said about aerobic class equipment. 

Sunday was the best day to work out at the Rec Complex, 
Eric Rohleder, sophomore in sociology, said. 

Rohleder, who worked out six days a week, said he sometimes 
had to wait 10 to 15 minutes to use weight machines during the

The overcrowding wasn't something Hawthorne had 

"This place is so huge and so awesome," Hawthorne said. 
"There's enough (equipment) for everybody, at least it seemed 
like it until now because there are so many people." 

Hawthorne said New Year's resolutions played a part in the 
increased use of the Rec Complex. 

"I think the big reason is people's New Year's resolutions," 
she said. "They don't want to let down on them too early and 
spring break is coming." 

The addition came at a perfect time, said Lange, who had 
worked at the Rec Complex for over a year. 

Walters said the expansion increased the number of 
cardiovascular machines. Before the expansion, the rec had only 
35 machines and afterwards it had 92. 

Another explanation for the increased popularity of the Rec 
Complex was the cold weather, Lange said. 

"People can't usually run (outside) during the winter time," 
Lange said. 

She estimated an average of 50 people used the track for 
running and walking during the busiest part of the evening. 

Because the complex's increased popularity was partially due 
to the approaching spring break, the number of users was 
expected to decrease after the vacation.

I get to stay in shape while doing it." 

She taught tap dance lessons at Washington Dance Studio in 
Manhattan, with students ranging from 5 to 10 years old. 

Watching her students perform was only one benefit ofbeing 
a dance instructor, she said. 

"My hours aren't long, I get paid above minimum wage, and 
my work schedule is consistent," Jennings said. "I also get to go 
to work comfortable. I don't have to dress up." 

Lisa Burnett, junior in family studies and human services, also 
planned to have her own dance studio. 

"I have taught dance since I was 16, and I like interacting 
with the kids," she said. "I want to teach them and give back to 
them what was given to me." 

With students ranging from age 4 to 8, Burnett taught ballet 
and tap for Manhattan Parks and Recreation. 

"I love to see my students' faces just light up when they get 
a new step or routine," she said. "It gives them (good) self esteem 
to know they have accomplished something new." 

Burnett started dance lessons at age 6 and took tap, jazz and 
ballet until her sophomore year of college. 

Although they often found themselves in the minority, men 
also taught aspiring dancers and gymnasts. 

Tim McCloud, junior in kinesiology, taught gymnastics at 
the Manhattan Gymnastics Center. 

He said boys should be in gymnastics to build character and 
to learn commitment. 

"My favorite part ofbeing an instructor is watching the kids

to anyone to a team that works together for a certain goal."

Franklin leaves K-State to offer 
new perspective on fatherhood 

by Kara Rogers 

After five years at K-State, Bernard 
Franklin, assistant dean of student life, ac- 
cepted the position of vice president and 
national director of the National Center for 
Fathering in Shawnee. 

The center was a non-profit education 
and research organization that equipped and 
inspired men to become dedicated fathers. 

"I am very much excited about the posi- 
tion," Franklin said. "I feel there is a real 
need to help men and to give them new 
perspectives about their jobs and children." 

In his new position, Franklin would co- 
tacihtate seminars sponsored by the center, 
gather data about families, travel as a spokes- 
man and give direction to education and 
programming for minority men. 

Franklin said he would continue to work 
with the University on recruiting and alumni 

"Bernard has been a significant member of 
our K-State community as an undergraduate 

in the '70s and for five years as a dean," said 
Pat Bosco, dean ot student life and associate 
vice president for institutional advancement. 
"He has touched thousands of lives at K-State 
and he will be sorely missed. 

As an undergraduate, Franklin was the 
first African American to be elected student 
body president. 

"Bernard is an inspiration to many stu- 
dents because he is a fearless leader," Meredith 
Mem, senior in apparel design, said. 

At K-State, Franklin's duties included co- 
ordinating the University's response to student 
misconduct, advising groups on campus and 
assisting with an African Male Symposium. 

He said leaving K-State had both advan- 
tages and disadvantages. 

"It is somewhat bittersweet," Franklin 
said. "It is bitter because you leave an envi- 
ronment you love and care about, but sweet 
because that environment has prepared you 
to leave."

Becoming the first two-time student body 
president in school history would be some- 
thing to boast about for most students. 

But that was not Jeff Peterson's style. 
Instead, he chose to downplay the signifi- 
cance of his accomplishment. 

"In fairness, I think I'm the only one who 
ran for a second term," Peterson, graduate 
student in animal science and industry, said. 
"As far as I know, I don't think other people 
have tried it." 

He said he decided to run again because 
leaving projects unfinished was out of the 

"A lot of the issues we were working on 
were long-term, like parking and open ad- 
missions," Peterson said. "So we thought 
one more year ot working on those issues 
could help us take student government to 
another level." 

This attitude helped Peterson gain the 
respect of others. 

"As a former student body president, I 
tend to judge potential student body presi- 
dents on what I think their motives are," 
Bernard Franklin, assistant dean of student 
life, said. "And from day one, I have noticed 
Jeffs almost completely unselfish commit- 
ment to the student body." 

Bob Krause, vice president for institu- 
tional advancement, also took notice of 
Peterson's leadership qualities. 

"Jeff is an exceptionally good listener and 
the tenacity he has is impressive," Krause 

Although he was able to meet a few 
people who were president before him, 
Peterson was initially surprised by the de- 
mands of the office. 

"I don't think anyone has any idea of 
what they are getting into when they run," 
Peterson said. "I knew people who were in 
office and I could see that they were tired, 
but I still had no idea." 

Peterson said the experience he gained 
his first year in office paid off. 

"We learned where to spend our time 
better by being a little more selective on 
what we do," he said. "We know some of 
the people on campus who can help us get 
things accomplished." 

The relationships Peterson and his staff 
formed with the faculty were further devel- 
oped during his second term. 

"It's having close personal ties with people 
that helps you get things done," he said. 
"Having a year of building those makes it 

Peterson said he once thought he couldn't 
handle being president because of the lack of 
time to do everyday things. 

"I like to have fun too, so I thought 
maybe I can't handle this, but I make time 
for fun," Peterson said. "I like to go to the K- 
State games and I try to go out with my 
friends at least once in a while."

Registering for safety 

by Sarah Garner 

For the first time, students and faculty who 
rode bicycles to campus were required to register 
them with the University. 

Dwain Archer, director of parking services, 
said bicycle registration was started to determine 
how much equipment the University would 
need when more racks and signs were purchased 
and the new bicycle path was constructed, among 
other reasons. 

"This is not a method for punishing anyone," 
Archer said. "I think the registration is a positive 
move for us because of being able to retrieve 
stolen bikes and return them to their rightful 

The University Planning Office was sched- 
uled to do a study of the bicycle program in 
spring 1996 to determine how much new equip- 
ment would be needed, said Archer. 

Archer said although 1,200 bikes were regis- 
tered with Parking Services, he was unsure how 
many students rode bicycles on campus. 

Johnnie Montgomery, senior in psychology, 
said he favored the registration as long as it wasn't 

used as a ticketing method. 

"I'm trying to figure out why they're doing it, 
but it's a good thing if it's helping retrieve stolen 
bikes," he said. "I'm opposed to it if they're doing 
it to ticket bikes. I've never heard of that in my 

Although registration was free, Anna Tischer, 
junior in business administration, said she didn't 
register her bike because she didn't believe the 
University needed an additional money-making 

"I felt that the university got enough money as 
it was by selling parking permits and parking fees 
and stuff," she said. "I didn't think it was right to 
get your bike locked up if it's not registered or to 
pay to get it out even if the registration is free." 

The deadline to register bicycles before being 
fined for riding an unregistered one was originally 
Oct. 1 . This deadline was moved to Nov. 1 and 
then spring 1996, Archer said. 

"I don't know why anyone would not want to 
register their bicycle," he said. "It's for their own

A change of speed

A bill passed by the Kansas Legislature

destination a little faster. 

Gov. Bill Graves signed a bill March 15, 
which increased speed limits on interstates 
and unproved two-lane highways.

together to reach a com- 
promise, Mike O'Neil, 
R-Hutchinson, said. 

During the sum- 
mer, the U.S. Senate 
passed a bill that al- 
lowed individual 
states to establish speed limits for their 
interstate highways. 

The bill increased speed limits on 
interstates and four-lane divided high- 
ways to 70 mph and two-lane highways to

65 mph. County roads would remain at 55 

The new speed limits took effect March 

If the bill had not passed by March 8, speed 
limits would have reverted to pre-1974 law. 

The cost to change road signs was esti- 
mated to be $340,000, said Jason Bitter, 
Kansas House of Representatives intern and 
sophomore in business administration. 

Even with the increased costs and possibil- 
ity of more accidents that would come with 
the new law, students favored the proposal. 

"I'd be in favor of it just because I think 
everybody's already doing it and would cut 
down on people trying to get away with 
something they're already doing," Brian 
Hatndge, junior in architectural engineering, 
said. "I don't know why we shouldn't have it 
if everyone's already doing it." 

The possibility of an increase in acci- 
dents and fatalities made some Manhattan 
residents think twice about the change. 

"I feel both ways. People who drive on the 
interstate tend to be the people who wear seat 
belts and that sometimes saves them in acci- 
dents," Stephanie GaUand, Riley County EMS 
services paramedic, said. "As long as people 
wear their seat belts and use their heads, I guess 
the increase would be OK." 

Town Center builds strong foundation and 
financial security through remarketed bonds 

by Kara Rogers 

The fear of Manhattan Town Center fore- 
closing prompted the city commission to allow 
Forest City, the mall's managing company, to 
remarket $18.8 million in mall bonds in No- 

Forest City wanted to remarket the bonds to 
find lower interest rates at a time when the 
economy was good. 

The refinancing of the mall was beneficial 
for everyone involved and it created long-term 
security, Curt Wood, city finance director, 

"(It is) beneficial for the city because of the 
lower interest rates on the bonds, and it elimi- 

nated the buyer of the bonds to sell them back," 
Wood said. 

The revenue bonds were sold to fund the 
building of the mall, which opened in 1987. 

By remarketing the bonds, Forest City was 
able to escape the put option that Lennar North- 
east Partnership, the former bond holder, could 
exercise in 1997. 

The put option allowed Lennar to force 
Forest City to pay the bonds offimmediately or 
the partnership would find another buyer for 
the bonds. 

"Forest City found another buyer for the 
bonds," Wood said. "This brought lower inter- 

est rates and financial security." 

If Forest City had not paid off the bonds or 
found another buyer, Lennar would have owned 
the mall and would have had the ability to 
foreclose on it. 

"The possibility of the foreclosure of the 
mall triggered a great deal of concern for every- 
one," said Chris Heavey, Manhattan Town 
Center general manager. 

Wood said he was glad Forest City remained 
the manager of the mall. 

"They have done an excellent job and cre- 
ated a foundation on sound footing," Wood

game-day traffic easier for fans 

by Kris Bethea 

Construction to expand Kansas Highway 177 
from two to four lanes began in spring 1995 and was 
scheduled to be completed by fall 1996. 

"The actual construction (from Interstate 70 to 
the Kansas River) is irritating," Jo Anna Rothwell, 
sophomore in political science, said. "I can't wait to 
see it when it's finished." 

The construction of a four-lane bridge over the 
Kansas River, which began in May 1994, was 
scheduled for completion in spring 1996. 

Funding for the bridge construction was pro- 
vided by the Bridge Replacement and Economic 
Development projects, Sandy Tommer, area engi- 

neer of the Kansas Department of Transportation, 

"Traffic conditions, accident history and con- 
dition of existing roads determined the necessity to 
improve," she said. 

More than $28 million was spent improving 
driving conditions in the Manhattan area, includ- 
ing construction on frontage road located in front 
of Wal-Mart. 

"The final results of the construction will be 
good," Rothwell said. "It will be easier for people 
to come to basketball and football games and for 
family and perspective students to visit campus."

nnocent verdict ends Simpson trial 

by Trina Holmes 

Did he do it? 

The question of whether OJ. Simpson 
stabbed his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, 
and her friend, Ronald Goldman, to death on 
June 12, 1994, was one asked over and over 
again during the nationally televised trial. 

After nine months of testimony, OJ. 
Simpson was acquitted by a jury Oct. 2. 

According to a Courtroom Television 
Network web page, prosecutors in the Cali- 
fornia v. Simpson trial said after years of 
abuse, O J. killed his ex-wite at her home in 
Brentwood, Calif. Goldman, a waiter, was 
also killed when he stopped by Nicole's 
residence to return a pair of her mother's 
eyeglasses that had been left at a restaurant. 

There were no witnesses to the double 

Prosecutors said blood evidence found at 
the crime scene, in O.J.'s car and home 
proved he had committed the murders. 

The Courtroom Television Network's 
synopsis also stated O J. said he was at home 
during the incident, preparing for a business 
trip he was taking to Chicago. O.J.'s lawyers 
said racist police planted the evidence. They 
produced witnesses and taped interviews 

that showed police detective Mark Fuhrman 
had a deep disdain for African Americans. 

Fuhrman was the detective who found 
the bloody glove at O.J.'s estate that became 
central to the prosecution's case. 

Defense attorneys said police contami- 
nated key evidence, making it unreliable. 

After approximately three hours of delib- 
eration, the jury that had been sequestered 
for 266 days acquitted OJ. 

Over the course of the proceedings, the 
trial drew mixed reactions from students. 

Erin Wright, junior in interior design, 
said the trial coverage got a little out of hand. 

"The longer it dragged on, the less I 
cared," she said. "At first, I watched it when 
I had the time, but at the end, I'd rather not 
have the TV on." 

Not only did the trial cut into daytime 
television, but Wright said it also dominated 
the nightly news. 

"I usually watched soaps during the after- 
noon and for a couple of months, they were 
on hold," she said. "And (the trial) is all the 
news was about." 

Dan Zook, senior in feed science man- 
agement, said media coverage of the trial 

was too extensive. 

"I thought it was ridiculous — the whole 
trial, the media coverage," he said. "They 
basically turned it into a soap opera, 'Days in 
the Life of OJ. Simpson.' Nobody really 
cared after a while, at least I didn't." 

Bill Adams, associate professor of jour- 
nalism, said all the media coverage effected 
the trial. 

"The media didn't impact the outcome 
of the trial but it had a lot of effect on the 
public's opinion of the outcome," he said. 
"Both the judge and the lawyers were influ- 
enced by the media in the way they acted 
and how they played to the cameras." 

Wright said she didn't agree with the 
jury's ruling. 

"I think the evidence was there, and I 
don't agree with the verdict at all," she said. 

Zook, on the other hand, said he thought 
the verdict was justified. 

"I don't know if he's guilty," Zook said. 
"I'm not surprised by the verdict, though. 
With as much emphasis as they put on race, 
it'd be hard for 12 people to say he was 
guilty, especially with as many mistakes as 
the cops and medical examiners made." 

Nation feels government shutdowns 

by Sarah Garner 

When Republicans and Democrats could 
not reach an agreement, Americans paid — 
$1.3 billion. 

Conflicts over balancing the national bud- 
get caused the federal government to shut down 
and government employees to be furloughed 
for six days beginning Nov. 14 and 21 days 
beginning Dec 16. 

Conflicts arose between President Bill 
Clinton and Congress over Congress' proposed 
cuts in Medicare, education and environmental 

When a compromise couldn't be reached, 
non-essential government offices were shut 
down and workers were either sent home or 
asked to work without pay. 

Closed facilities included government mu- 
seums and military recruitment and passport 
offices. Medicare contractors were asked to 
continue working without pay, and the Envi- 

88 -News Section— 

ronmental Protection Agency shut down toxic 
waste-site clean-up operations. 

"Two weeks ago when a mill burned down 
in Massachusetts, workers received immediate 
assistance for child care, transportation and job 
training," Clinton said in a Jan. 3 press release. 
"Last week when 2,000 workers lost their jobs 
at a Rhode Island factory, the Labor Depart- 
ment could not respond at all." 

A reprieve was passed Jan. 26 to keep the 
federal government open until Mar. 15. 

Students and professors felt the effects of the 

About 150 students who submitted their 
financial aid application after Dec. 12 found 
themselves waiting for school money, Larry 
Moeder, director of student financial assistance, 

The University also had to wait for funds. 
Because of delays in receiving grant money, the 

University could end up in the red by the time 
they received the grant money, Terry Johnson, 
professor of biology, said. 

"There are so many government-funded 
things that are necessary for people to just eat," 
Johnson said. "Ours is a minor inconvenience 
because it's not a matter of life and death." 

He said he was unsure when the University 
would receive the funding. 

Beverly Page, information specialist for the 
vice-provost of research, compiled a weekly 
grant-description newsletter. 

"For about a month there was no informa- 
tion or announcements on new grant programs 
and no one could call and get information 
because people weren't available to answer 
questions," she said. 

However, for people who depended on the 
government for day-to-day necessities, the prob- 
lems were more than an inconvenience.

Aftermath of the Oklahoma Bombing 

by Maria Sherrill 

The Alfred P. Murrah Fed- 
eral building in Oklahoma City 
was bombed April 19 at 9:02 a.m. 

The explosion killed 1 69 and 
injured 500 people, ranging in 
age from four months to 57 years. 

"You couldn't see any trace 
of a building and all the other 
buildings were boarded up," 
Candace Butler, Bartlesville, 
Okla., resident and graduate stu- 
dent in English, said. "During 
Christmas, there was a Christ- 
mas tree with presents under it. 
People were standing there pon- 
dering and crying in memory of 
and dedication to the victims." 

Former Fort Riley soldiers and 
Herington residents Timothy 
McVey, 27, and Terry Nichols,40, 
were charged with violating 11 
laws, including conspiracy to use 

weapons of mass destruction. 

The two individuals, who 
were indicted by a grand jury, 
wanted the trial relocated be- 
cause ol the possible effects the 
bombing had on potential jurors 
and judges. 

In a change of venue hearing 
Nov. 10, prosecutors cited laws 
that required defendants to be 
tried in the district and state the 
crime was committed. The trial 
was scheduled to start May 17 in 
Lawton, Okla. 

"They should be convicted. 
It was a terrible thing to do," 
Michael Smith, sophomore in 
fisheries and wildlife biology, 
said. "No justice would be harsh 
enough, but they will eventually 
get what they deserve." 

"Listen to Children," a pro- 

gram to help Oklahoma City chil- 
dren deal with their feelings and 
cope with the experience, was 
organized by University of Okla- 
homa students and the OU Health 
Sciences Center. Between 3,000 
and 4,000 children participated in 
the program. 

Those living in Oklahoma 
were not the only ones affected. 

Mandy Magnison, sophomore 
in psychology, said her uncle had 
worked in the federal building and 
was driving away from the office 
when the force of the explosion 
caused his truck windows to shatter. 

"I called home as soon as I 
heard it on the news," she said. "I 
was so scared because it hit so 
close to home. I think it made 
everyone wake up because this 
stuff could happen anywhere."

Israeli leader assassinated 

by Todd Stover 

The Arab-Israel peace process entered a 
phase of uncertainty Nov. 4 when Israeli 
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was fatally 
shot after speaking at a peace rally in Tel 
Aviv, Israel. 

The assassination shocked the world and 
caused Israelis to wonder if their once peace- 
ful nation could become a society of vio- 

Yigal Amir, Tel Aviv area resident, con- 
fessed to killing Rabin, the military hero 
who led Israel from a state of war to a peace 
agreement with Palestine and Arabia. 

The prime minister's death was com- 
memorated Nov. 13 in the K-State Student 
Union when B'nai B'rith Hillel, a Jewish 
student organization, and the KSU Com- 
mittee on Religion and Campus Ministry 
joined to sponsored a ceremony in memory 
of Rabin. 

Don Fallon, coordinator of religious ac- 
tivities tor the dean of student life office, said 
the event's purpose was to remember Rabin's 
death and the hurt nation of Israel. 

"It allowed us in our community to 
mourn and share our feelings and grief," he 

The ceremony created opportunities for 
people from all faiths to share their feelings, 
Fallon said. 

The ceremony included an invocation, 
scripture readings and prayers from campus 
ministers. Students also gave reflections of 
Rabin's life. 

"I thought the ceremony was nice, but it 
was held on the main floor of the Union and 
people were walking by and talking. It was 
a little odd to have a ceremony in the middle 
of that traffic," Debbie Perlman, senior in 
marketing, said. "It did actually go very 
nicely with members of the community 
there, too." 

Fallon said about 20 students attended the 

"The ceremony was very helpful for the 
Israeli students," Fallon said. "They were 
grieving the death of Rabin and the cer- 
emony helped to ease their pain." 

U.S. troops sent to Bosnian front line 

by Bill Bontempo and Heather Hollingsworth 

President Bill Clinton presented his case 
Nov. 27 from the Oval Office for sending 
20,000 U.S. troops to the front line of the 
NATO peacekeeping force in Bosnia, hoping 
to end conflicts between the Serbs, Croats and 
Bosnian Muslims. 

When the United States entered the pic- 
ture, Serb nationalist forces had overrun 70 
percent of Bosnia's territory. 

On Sept. 4, Serbs shelled a Sarajevo mar- 
ketplace, killing 37 civilians. The United States, 
aided by its NATO allies, took action. They 
bombed key targets and destroyed communi- 
cation centers, roads and supply depots. 

A peace agreement was announced Nov. 
21 after 21 days of negotiations at Wright- 
Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. 
Clinton called it a comprehensive settlement 
to end the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. 

Stressing that America's role would not be 
fighting a war, Clinton said the peace agree- 

ment would require military backing. 

"It will be about helping the people ofBosnia to 
secure their own peace," he said. "In fulfilling this 
mission, we will have the chance to help stop the 
killing of innocent civilians, and especially children. " 

According to a Dec. 4 press release from the 
Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense, 22 
U.S. Army units and five U.S. Air Force units 
had been identified for potential deployment in 
the NATO Implementation Force in Bosnia. 

Bart Ransone, junior in history, was one 
soldier deployed to Bosnia. He was the only K- 
State ROTC student deployed to Bosnia, but 
110 Fort Riley soldiers were sent to the Euro- 
pean Theater for future deployment. 

Ransone departed for Fort Dix, N.J., en 
route to an eventual Bosnia mission with the 
487th Engineer Platoon National Guard Unit 
from Washington, Kan., Dec. 26. 

Ransone's unit was deployed for 270 days 
and he was to return in mid-September 1996. 

"He had an opportunity to sign an ROTC 
contract and get out of going to Bosnia, but he 
said he wanted to go," Capt. Brad Duffey, 
assistant professor of military science, said. 

After a Dec. 20-21 conference, representa- 
tives from 50 countries, 20 international orga- 
nizations, the European Commission and World 
Bank allocated $518 million to Bosnia- 
Herzegovina to cover their most urgent needs. 

NATO announced Jan. 6 its forces would 
begin foot patrols in the tense suburbs of Sarajevo 
held by nationalist Serb forces. 

The Jan. 19 withdrawal of forces from the 
zones of separation in Bosnia met the Dayton 
peace accords deadline. 

Meanwhile, concerned parents and loved 
ones awaited the return of American forces. 

"There's always a chance that something 
could happen," Bart's mother, Pat Ransone, 
said. "I'm very proud of him, I guess my biggest 
problem is I'm going to miss him."

United Nations celebrates 50 years 

by Trina Holmes 

The United Nations celebrated its 50th anniver- 
sary in 1995. 

According to the U.N. 50th Anniversary Com- 
memorative Activities web page, two major events 
marked the peacekeeping body's celebration — the 
U.N. charter was signed June 26, 1945, in San 
Francisco and was ratified Oct. 25 by the majority of 
the 50 nations who signed it. 

The anniversary's main events took place Oct. 
24 in New York. Various communication projects 
to expand coverage of U.N. activities, conferences, 
symposia, concerts, art exhibits, posters and auctions 
punctuated the year-long 50th anniversary celebra- 

Manuri Nakkawita, sophomore in journalism 
and mass communications, said her father, Janaka 
Nakkawita, had been a U.N. diplomat for 28 years. 
He was a representative for Sri Lanka and served as 
an ambassador to Pakistan. 

"I ask my dad all the time what it is he does," 
Nakkawita said. "All I see is him shaking a lot of 
hands and smiling a lot. He's forever going to 
diplomatic parties and dinners." 

Although her father was able to participate in 

some of the U.N.'s 50th anniversary commemo- 
rative activities, Nakkawita said he had been 
concerned with the war going on in Sri Lanka. 

"He did some celebrating of the U.N.'s 50th 
anniversary, but there's a war going on at home 
in Sri Lanka," she said. "He's been very busy with 
that lately." 

Nakkawita said she was proud of her father. 

"Sometimes, I look at him and think 'Wow,' " 
she said. "I'll go to a function and watch him 
speak, and it's hard for me to believe he's my dad. 
At home, he's just a regular guy who plays games 
and listens to music. But when he goes out, he 
turns diplomat and shows a quiet side and talks 

Enjoying her life in Manhattan, Nakkawita 
said she didn't tell many people she was an 
ambassador's daughter. She said she didn't think 
many people would understand what that meant. 

"Back home, to be an ambassador's daughter 
is a big deal. It's a status thing," she said. "But I 
like the local life here. Back home, I couldn't go 
anywhere without a driver and a bodyguard. 
Here, I can walk to class."

notes lined the edges of her daily planner, 
prioritizing a hectic schedule of classes and 
meetings — a schedule Glamour magazine 
was looking for when selecting applicants for 
its Top 10 College Competition. 

An opportunity to broaden her college 
experience led Michelle Munson, senior in 
electrical engineering, to enter the contest 
which was based on activities and involve- 

"What you experience in the classroom 
is only part of your college experience," she 
said. "In the long run, it's sometimes worth 
choosing other things over what you might 
be doing academically." 

Although she was aware of the compe- 
tition, Munson said she waited until the last 
minute to enter. 

"I didn't decide to apply until literally 
the weekend before the application was 
due," she said. "I did it mostly because it 
looked interesting and it would be worth 
giving it a try." 

She submitted an application listing her 
campus activities, ranging from student gov- 
ernment to honor programs and councils, 
and an essay describing how her most signifi- 
cant college accomplishments related to her 
future plans. 

"The one neat thing about the way they 
do that is they let you send in examples of 
your work, whatever it may be — anything 
from a tape of a girl playing volleyball to 
musical tapes of a girl playing the marimbas, 
whatever you think defines you," she said. 

She not only submitted her transcript, 
but she also included samples of her work, 
recommendations and a resume. 

Entering the contest on a whim paid off 
for Munson, who was chosen as a finalist and 
appeared in Glamour's October 1995 issue. 

Munson was one of 10 finalists flown to 
New York City for five days. She was im- 
pressed with the atmosphere and manner in 
which the competition was held when she 

"When I went to New York, I expected 
it to be glitzy and very showbiz-like but it 
wasn't like that at all," Munson said. "They 
didn't try to change our looks and they let us 
choose what we wanted to wear during the 
photo shoot. And the makeover on the last 
day was totally optional." 

Visiting with the past winners was an- 
other advantage of Munson's trip to New 

"It was really impressive meeting the 
past winners," she said. "They are three to 
five years older and have accomplished so 
many things since winning. I even had the 
chance to sit next to and carry on a conver- 
sation with Geraldine Feraro during a dinner 
banquet one evening." 

Munson said she was impressed with the 
other finalists of the Top 10 College Compe- 

"What I remember most is the other 
girls," Munson said. "Not only are they just 
great people to be friends with, but these are 
people who are really going 
to do something with their 
lives. It's so exciting to think 
that I'm going to be able to 
be in contact with them."

in space and high silver content in water kept 
undergraduate researchers busy collecting 

"The process of doing research takes 
hours of the students' time," Gary Conrad, 
protessor ot biology, said. "There are only a 
few experiments being conducted this year." 

Conrad said he believed students 
learned best from hands-on research, so he 
recruited undergraduates to help with his 

"I would rather spend my time with the 
undergraduate students, because they are 
very interested, and we get more research 
done," Conrad said. 

One experiment Conrad and his under- 
graduate researchers worked on dealt with 
survival through prolonged space voyages. 

Astronauts would need to raise animals 
and grow plants for food to survive in space, 
he said. 

"(When you) take a spaceship to Mars, 
you can't pack enough groceries," Conrad 
said. "That means you are going to have to 
grow plants and animals like it was a farm on 
the spaceship." 

Diane Wells, freshman in microbiology, 
tested the ability of chickens and quail to 
survive and reproduce in zero gravity. 

"What we are doing is seeing if every- 
thing develops correctly. The experiment 
might have a possible effect on the space 
program," Wells said. "I look at different 
corneal nerves of chick and quail eyes that 
have developed in space." 

When Conrad discovered that silver was 

a water purification agent on a Russian space 
station, he had another young scientist ex- 
periment with the effects of silver on 
human cells. 

"We grew all the cells, and we used 
different concentrations of silver on them," 
Chad Long, junior in biology, said. "One 
concentration killed them within an hour." 

The dangerous effects discovered in the 
experiment caused the Russian space station 
to consider adopting the NASA system of 
purifying water with iodine. 

"It came out with big consequences, 
especially the Russians' changing their 
water system," Long said. "Silver might 
end up making them have more prob- 
lems, such as cancers and 
not fighting off diseases as 

Long planned to attend 
medical school and hoped 
the researching skills he 
learned would benefit him. 

"Research has made 
me a better thinker," Long 
said. "It has made me a bet- 
ter scientist." 

Collecting and analyz- 
ing the information was a 
good experience for under- 
graduates. Wells said. 

"I am astonished," she 
said. "In my first semester I 
started out with something 
that would later tell us about 
the development in space."

of silver on human cells, Long looks

becoming confused with analyzing the 
demand curve, students became even more 
frustrated when they discovered there was a 
waiting list for help. 

With 35 tutors for almost 800 students, 
the tutoring center needed more tutors to 
meet the demands of the waiting list. 

Falling short of the more than 40 student 
tutors available last year, the center placed an 
advertisement in the Collegian to attract 
potential tutors, Derrik Hubbard, tutor and 
senior in anthropology, said. 

The ad attracted more than 10 tutors in 
two months, he said. After it was taken out 
of the paper, students needing tutors were 
still turned away. 

"There are thousands of classes and our 
budget would not allow us to hire that 
number of tutors, so we limit it to the basic 
classes like math, chemistry and physics," 
Hubbard said. "About 80 percent of the 
students request assistance in those classes, so 
having a couple hundred people on a waiting 
list isn't that bad." 

Even finding a tutor tor basic classes was 
difficult, Eric VanGaasbeek, sophomore in 
arts and sciences, said. He was put on waiting 
lists for physics, sociology and 

"I ended up dropping those classes," he 

said. "I didn't have the money to spend on 
a professional tutor and the center was what 
I was depending on." 

Students lucky enough to have tutors 
received free help while the tutors were paid 
$5 an hour through either the Education 
Opportunity Fund or Education Support 

Tutoring sessions, 
arranged in five-member 
study groups, were based on 
the tutors' class schedules. 

"I think I have an ability 
to explain things to students 
that are sometimes hard to 
understand," Hubbard said, 
"Spanish classes are taught in 
Spanish, and it is easier to 
understand in English." 

James Trout, senior in 
sociology, had been tutoring 
for four years. He said he 
believed the program helped 
the students using it. 

"I tutored a girl about a 
year ago who came in with a 
D in Business Calculus," he 
said. "At the end of the

"A common characteristic ofthe women 
who come to the program is that they need 
to gain marketable skills," Shirley Marshall, 
program director, said. "Otten, though, they 
have low self-esteem and have come from 
being abused." 

Funded by grants, the New Directions 
program presented personal development 
workshops and helped students pay for 
vocational-technical classes. 

"We're not a job service," Cynthia 

Shanley, program coordinator, said. "We 

are basically a guidance and support service. " 

With two teenagers and a lack of job 

skills, Debra Pruett, junior in sociology, 

realized she needed to get an

decided to go to school.

Marshall sparked Pruett's interest in the

Through the program, Pruett attended

Willard Hall. 

"Ever since I was a child, I've always had 
an urge to be an artist," 
Karen Whitmore, sopho- 
more in fine arts, said. "Back 
then, I didn't know I could 
get a career in it." 

After going to graduate 
school, she wanted to work 
for either Monet or Tiffany's 
on a design team. 

Whitmore became in- 
terested in jewelry making 
when she visited her uncle's 
jewelry store in California. 

"He had all these con- 
traptions for cleaning the 
pieces and he had a story 
behind every stone in the 
store," Whitmore said. "I 
think all girls love jewelry." 
Whitmore and Lee 
Hallagin, senior in fine arts, 
were students of Elliott 
Pujol, professor of art. 

When Whitmore 
started taking art classes, 
her mentor was Michael 
Mastranardi, professor of 
fine arts. He inspired her to 

pursue her desire for jewelry. 

"He was always encouraging me with 
3-D, and he had an independent style," 
Whitmore said. "He would give us free 
reign to design what we wanted. He al- 
ways told me not to lose faith." 

Mastranardi left in summer 1995 and 
was replaced by Pujol, who taught the 
jewelry and metalsmithing class. 

"He's an excellent teacher who be- 
lieves m a more formatted style of teach- 
ing," Whitmore said about Pujol. "He's a 
lot more structured than Mastranardi." 

Pujol pushed his students and was 
dedicated to teaching, Hallagin said. 

"If I've got a problem, he usually 
comes up with a number of different ways 
to solve it," he said. "He pushed us to 
beyond the obvious solutions." 

Whitmore said Pujol had a more 
structured teaching style because he 
wanted students to get hands-on experi- 

"They design something and then go 
through the actual process of designing, 
researching and constructing a piece," 
Pujol said. "My main goal is for them to 
have enough knowledge so they have a 
full understanding of what's out there." 

Whitmore said she realized this under-

People began approaching her and asking her 
to make jewelry for them. 

"It's so much fun," Whitmore said. "I 
have people coming up to me and asking me 
where I got that piece of jewelry and when 
I tell them that I made it, they want me to 
make them one, too." 

Although she aspired to work for a large 
jewelry company, Whitmore said she 
wanted to design different kinds of jewelry. 

"My ultimate goal would be to design 
rings, bracelets, necklaces and things like 
that," Whitmore said. "I don't want to de- 
sign just fine jewelry." 

Hallagin became involved in jewelry 
making and metalsmithing as a hobby. 

"A friend introduced me to the classes," 
he said. "I really enjoyed them and changed 
my major." 

Hallagin was originally a chemical engi- 
neering major. 

"It's hard trying to get something that 
looks good," he said. "You almost have to be 
an engineer to do it right." 

Making the pieces fit was a major part of 

designing, Hallagin said. 

"You have to make sure the pieces have 
structural integrity," Hallagin said. "They 
have to conform to the body."

enrollment and a lack of state funding caused 
a tuition increase that sent students reaching 
deeper into their pockets. 

Enrollment had increased 13 percent 
since 1989 as state funding dropped due to 
cuts in government funding, Susan Peterson, 
assistant to the president, said. 

Each department was responsible for 
cutting their own spending. 

Administrators were uncertain as to how 
the financial cuts would affect the University, 
Tom Rawson, vice president for 
administration and finance, said. 

"We're going to take a big dip, but we 
will be back to the normal rate by 2000," 
Peterson said. "That is if nothing changes." 
The University expected a period of 
enrollment growth for the next six to eight 
years, Jim Coffman, provost, said. 

"K-State gets back all 
its tuition money," Coffman 
said. "But the more tuition 
revenue we make, the less 
additional funding we get 
from the state." 

The University com- 
peted with all regent and 
public schools, and other 
state agencies for the same 
pool of funds. In the 1995 
legislative budget, $138 

million was alloted for the pool. However, 
this number dipped to $14 million in the 
1996 budget, Peterson said. 

In future years, the University might 
receive more funds, but it was hard to predict 
state funding, Peterson said. 

"We've really stretched all our resources, 
human and physical, to the max," she said. 
"We've asked and people have worked really 
hard at it." 

For every dollar its peer universities 
received, such as the University of North 
Carolina, the University received 88 cents. 

"We've been running short funded, a 
lot less than our peer institutes," Peterson 
said. "Our benchmark is our peers, and we 
really are far behind them." 

In June, the Kansas Board of Regents 
approved linear fees to help keep future 
tuition increases minimal. 

However, because of the decrease in 
funding, students paid a larger part of their 
educational costs than in the past, Coffman 

Matt Weller, freshman in pre-journalism 
and mass communications, was forced work 
to pay for his tuition. 

"For most people, it's not just going to 
college anymore," he said. "You have to get 
ajob to help pay for tuition, because otherwise 
it's too expensive." 

Standing outside the enrollment center in 
Willard Hall, Hollis Berry, freshman in applied 
music, studies a line schedule to find a class

Clustered in small discussion groups, 
students receive directions from Chen about 
the next discussion assignment. Chen was 
trilingual, speaking Chinese, English and 
German, which she said increased her 
understanding of language differences. 
(Photo by Cary Conover) 

language teachers taught more than then- 
native language. Some went beyond that to 
teach a language that was not just foreign to 
students, but also to themselves. 

Adam White, junior in music education, 
took a German class from Heqing Chen, 
Chinese native and graduate student in 
modern languages. 

"We get a different perspective than from 
a regular American teacher since she's trilin- 
gual," White said. "She does a fine job." 

He said he thought Chen had a better 
understanding than most teachers of the 
language differences and seemed to know 
German better than English. This some- 
times made it difficult to 
understand her. White said. 
"(Problems with under- 
standing) happen occasion- 
ally," White said. "She's said 
things like, 'When you take 
your vocation,' instead of 

Chen said she enjoyed 
teaching German, despite oc- 
casional misunderstandings. 
"When I see my students 
making progess, I can see 
I'm helping them," Chen 
said. "For me, that's some- 

thing special because it's sometimes hard for 
me to know exactly when my students 
understand what I'm trying to teach them." 

Timothy Etzel, sophomore in nuclear 
engineering, said he enjoyed being in French

tive and graduate student in modern lan- 

"Her accent was a little strange at first and 
was tough to get used to," Etzel said. "But

Noisaengsri said she taught French in- 
stead of her native Thai language because 
the University did not offer Thai. Teaching 
languages that were not native to her made 
it difficult to keep words straight, she said. 

"It's not that hard because I love French 
and I started learning it my first year of high 
school," she said. "The thing that's hard is to 
teach my students to love French like I do." 

Noisaengsri said she did not have prob- 
lems teaching French except when she con- 
tused English and French. 

"Sometimes when I want to speak French, 
English comes out or when I want to speak 
English, French comes out," she said. "I 
don't think in Thai anymore because it 
causes problems trying to have three lan- 
guages in one brain."

by choice or because of academic require- 
ments, students opted to stay at college 
longer than the traditional four years. 

"I'm doing this by choice in a way," 
Chris Bosco, senior in milling science man- 
agement, said. "It's either stay an extra se- 
mester or take a 24-hour semester in the 
spring to get out in four years." 

Bosco said the extra se- 
Basically I'm indecisive mester not only allowed him 

to finish his degree, but also 
abOUt What I Want tO be and receive a business minor that 

he might not have had origi- 

where I want to be, but I am naiiy. 

"It's frustrating to say I'm 
having a gOOd time and enjoy- not graduating with everyone 

else," Bosco said. "It's kind of 
ing College life tO the fullest like the stigma m elementary 

school. Sometimes I feel like 
extent. ^' m being held back." 

Bosco had always taken 
at least 14 hours a semester, 
but with his major, the Uni- 
versity recommended taking 
17 hours a semester. 
"Realistically, it's gotten to the point 
where people need to realize they can't get 
out in four years without pushing it and that's 
no way to enjoy college," Bosco said. 

Staying in college an extra year provided 
an opportunity for Kurt Guth, senior in 



study and further enjoy college life. 

"It's smart to stay five years, but I think 
a lot depends on your maturity level," Guth 
said. "Staying another year gives you an 
opportunity to gain more knowledge. I don't 
think I'll be prepared enough for the real 
world after four years." 

Studying abroad also slowed the four- 
year graduation plan. 

Kris Goering, senior in secondary edu- 
cation, said she had an extra year of college 
because she spent a year studying in France 
and was also indecisive about her major. 

"Looking back, I'm frustrated that I 
changed my major a million times," Goering 
said. "I could've avoided staying an extra 
year if I'd decided what I wanted to do 

She said it was worth staying an addi- 
tional year to have the opportunity to study 
in France, but like Bosco, said she sometimes 
felt left behind. 

"Most of my friends have moved on,"

It was very good training pri- 
marily because of the experi- 
ence of our flight instructor.

helicopter's blades buzzed above Salina as 

highway patrol officers learned a lesson. 

The Kansas Highway Patrol donated two 

helicopters to K-State-Salina 

in exchange for training five 

ot their officers to fly. 

"We train helicopter pi- 
lots here at Salina," Bill Gar- 
rison, assistant professor in 
aeronautics, said. "They 
chose to come to us because 
we can do this." 

Both Garrison and his son, 
Bill Garrison, Jr., trainee! the 
"They are turbine-powered helicopters 
worth about $300,000 combined," Ken 
Barnard, K-State-Salina aeronautical depart- 
ment chair, said. "We are getting about 


$300,000 worth of equipment for about 
$50,000 worth of training." 

In the education-equipment swap, five 
highway patrol officers received helicopter 
flight training they could use for many tasks. 
However, they had one task in mind. 

"The program will be mainly directed 
toward the marijuana irradication program," 
Sergeant Jim Lamb, highway patrol aircraft 
coordinator, said. "They also pertain to all 
phases ot drug reinforcement. The helicop- 
ters' main job is the spotting of the outdoor- 
grown marijuana plants." 

The partnership between K-State-Salina 
and the highway patrol began when the 
highway patrol acquired surplus military 
equipment from the drug interdiction pro- 
gram, Garrison said.

Garrison shows highway patrol officers the oil

acquired two turbine-powered helicopters from 

the Kansas Highway Patrol as part of a joint 

effort to train highway patrol pilots. The 

helicopters, originally military surplus copters, 

were used as part of the highway patrol's drug 

interdiction program. (Photo by Jill Jarsulic) 

(continued from page 1 12) 

"One, they asked us to certify the heli- 
copters from the surplus to civilian cat- 
egory," Barnard said. "Two, they asked us 
to maintain the aircraft after they had been 
certified. Three, they asked us to train their 
airplane pilots to be helicopter pilots." 

Belore the officers could fly the helicop- 
ters, however, they had to meet three re- 
quirements, including completing 15 hours 
of both dual and solo flight, passing a check 
flight with the Federal Aviation Adminis- 
tration, and obtaining a commercially rated 
helicopter pilot's license. 

In addition, the highway patrol asked 
the University to train their airplane pilots 
in helicopter flight techniques. 

Of 16 highway patrol pilots, five were 

selected for the program, including Trooper 
Pilot One Brad Seacat. 

"We all started our helicopter training 
back in September," Seacat said. "Five of us 
are being trained from ground up." 

Three highway patrol pilots were trained 
during the fall semester and the remaining 
two were trained in the spring. 

Law enforcement flying was not merely 
flying from point A to point B, since it also 
included drug raids, manhunts and service 
renderings, Seacat said. 

The K-State-Salina flight program was 
beneficial, he said. 

"It was very good training primarily be- 
cause of the experience of our flight instruc- 
tor," Seacat said. "He was flying helicopters 
before I was even born."

exchange for the flight training, the Highway

to be hours of relentless pounding and con- 

"People were wandering around, not 
knowing where the books were," Chris 
Kleidotsy, library employee and senior in 
secondary education, said. "It's been terrible, 
books being shifted around, the dirt, dust and 
water leaks." 

The construction, which began in 1 994, 
doubled the library's floor size, increased 
seating occupancy to 2,000 and created more 
room for a larger collection of resource 

Students not only dealt with an expand- 
ing building, but also the coming of a new 

Following a $2 million donation made 
by Joseph and Joyce Hale, Overland Park 
alumni, University administrators decided 
the facility needed a new name. 

"With no money coming from the state, 
the money is coming from donations," Brice 
Hobrock, dean of libraries, said. "It reflects 
that with the changing times, we must find 
money from private donors." 

Students said they were not well in- 
formed about the name change that was to 
come with the completion of the construc- 

"I think the students should have been 
consulted," Rob Macdougall, freshman in 
engineering, said. "It's our library and we are 
putting our money into it." 

The administration hoped to obtain 
about $5 million from student fees, which 
cost each student $9.27 per semester to help 
finance the project. 

The library's $28-nnllion expansion and 
renovation was to be completed by spring 

"The quality of the old library was so 
poor," Hobrock said. "This time we're 
building a quality facility that will not look a 
1 00 years old right after we build it, complete 
with air conditioning, quality seats, 24-hour 
study area with a food facility and the latest in 
electrical systems." 

Students and faculty 
were anxious about having a 
larger, modern and more 
convenient library at their 

"We will finally have a 
facility that is student- 
friendly and one of the finest 
in the nation," Hobrock 
said. "We wouldn't have 
been able to do it without the 
students' help. They have 
been veiy accommodating."

a person's heart took on a whole new mean- 
ing as students reached their hands into a tub 
of preserved body organs and started human 
body class for the day. 

"We have big tubs of different organs, 
like we might have a tub of 1 to 15 hearts," 
Brook Donley, junior in pre-physical 
therapy, said. "Everyone gets a heart or a 
limb to learn with." 

Reid Bauersfeld, sophomore in kinesi- 
ology, said he liked the knowledge he gained 
from working with the organs. 

"It's like when you were a little kid and 
had a toy box, but now your toys are parts of 
a human body," he said. 

During the lab, students studied human 
anatomy using three bodies, which were 
rented from the University of Kansas Medi- 
cal Center. 

Ann Smith, associate professor of biol- 
ogy, said nearly 95 percent of colleges do not 
work with cadavers because bodies are hard 
to obtain. 

"We are fortunate in Kansas because 
back in the 1 970s the head of the KU medical 
department went across Kansas asking 
people to donate their bodies to science and 
he had a good response," she 

Smith said because of 
the good response, KU 
Medical Center had enough 
bodies to be able to rent out 
three to K-State each semes- 

Dissection of the bodies 
was done by two cadaver 
teams, consisting of 16 stu- 

dents each. To become a member of the 
team, students applied on the first day of class 
and the professor selected 32 students from a 
group of about 60, based on grades, major, 
schedule and a short essay. 

Members learned the material three 
weeks before the other students and spent an 
additional tour hours a week in lab with no 
extra credit. 

"We are graded tougher. We need to 
get all the spellings correct to receive all 
points," Donley said. "The regular students 
get extra credit on the test if they get all the 
spelling correct." 

What the students on the team did get 
was extra time working with an actual hu- 
man body, giving them a better understand- 
ing of the anatomy. 

"It is a lot more work, but it is definitely 
worth it," Donley said. "I would not trade it 
for anything." 

After dissecting the cadavers, members 
of the team showed the other students what 
they had learned, because not all students 
were allowed to work hands-on with the 
cadavers. Instead, they dissected rats during 
labs because rat anatomy was similiar to 
human anatomy. 

"In our labs we basically find the same 
parts of the anatomy as the cadaver team, we 
just find them in a rat," Russ Radi, junior in 
pre-physical therapy, said. 

Unlike other classes, outside students 
were not allowed to sit in on the labs. 

"These people donated their bodies for 
science and education, not to be viewed casu- 
ally by people who just want to drop by," Ron 
Gaines, assistant instructor of biology, said. 

Heather Lee, senior in life science, observes a 
microscopic slide of human kidney cells and 
records her information. Students in human 
body class spent six hours a week in lab 
recording observations of human and rat 
anatomy. An additional four hours were spent 
in lecture. (Photo by Darren Whitley) 

Renting Bodies 



I 18 -Human Body- 

Human body students 
review parts of human 
reproductive organs during 
the general lab portion of 
the class. Students had the 
opportunity to observe a 
dissected cadaver rented 
from the University of 
Kansas Medical School. Actual 
dissection of the cadavers 
was done in a specially 
selected lab. The lab 
consisted of two, 16-member 
teams. Students interested in 
being part of the cadaver 
team had to apply and be 
accepted by the instructor. 
The students selected found 
the lab beneficial and worth 
the additional work. "You 
get more knowledge of the 
human anatomy because you 
are actually dissecting a 
human body," Ladonna Kohl, 
junior in pre-occupational 
therapy, said. (Photo by

Blueberry soup, building blocks and 
tons of imagination greeted visitors to the 
KSU Child Development Center, the sec- 
ond largest of its kind in the state. 

"These children are at an age of unbe- 
lievable creativity," Heidi Hall, assistant pre- 
school teacher, said. "This is 
the perfect time to teach 
them interactive skills, how 
to work and share together." 
Programs were avail- 
able tor toddlers, pre- 
schoolers and kindergart- 
ners. Options were offered, 
including full-day and half- 
day classes, and care for 
school-age children on in- 
service days, Lorna Ford, 
KSUCDC director, said. 
The center, located in 
Jardine Terrace Apartments, was open to the 
children of students, faculty and staff. 

Ford said 25 full-time staff members 
worked with more than 1 80 children in the 
two-story structure. 

The preschool room overflowed with 
colorful drawings, clay sculptures and art 

old, sketched a blue, green and purple stick 

"Look, it's Mrs. Karla," she said. 

Karla Heck was the preschool lead in- 

"This is an impressionable age. I'm imi- 
tated," Heck said. "I have to be a referee, 
teacher, mother and doctor, but above all 
else I'm a role model." 

Niki Schlabach, junior in business ad- 
ministration, worked as a substitute teacher 
and office personnel. She said the center's 
program format was different than she had 

"I grew up in a large family and baby-sat 
quite a lot. The center is more than baby- 
sitting," Schlabach said. "Teachers create 
daily lesson plans and activities for the chil- 
dren which help them grow as communica- 
tors and thinkers." 

Children learned respect and responsi- 
bility from being around the center's pets. 

Anxious preschoolers greeted Maxine, 
the resident hamster, as she appeared sleepy- 
eyed from her nest. They struggled to pet 
Maxine as Heck calmly asked them to be 
gentle and patient. 

"The children are responsible for feed- 
ing the animals," Heck said. "Not only are 
they learning responsibility, they are acquir- 
ing respect towards animals, towards any- 

created by the children. Ashley, a 4-year- thing."

badges were not the only rewards these Girl 
Scouts received. 

They had the opportunity of working 
with student volunteers in the Girl Scouts' 
Be Your Best program, aimed at increasing 
the girls' abilities, self-confidence and cul- 
tural awareness and promoting healthy 

Volunteers received three credit hours 
for taking a class offered in connection with 
the Be Your Best program. 

Students became involved after signing 
up in education or women's studies classes. 

They worked with Girl Scouts in the 
fourth through ninth grade, keeping them 
on task at the weekly meetings and helping 
prepare activities for these meetings. 

"Usually you take a group of five or six 
girls and keep them on task," Susan Sumner, 
program volunteer and senior in elementary 
education, said. "We just make sure they're 
doing what they're supposed to be doing." 

Faith Brooks, program volunteer and jun- 
ior in apparel design, saw benefits to Be 
Your Best. 

"The girls are getting educated because 
the programs on Tuesdays all have different 
topics that are educational and interesting," 
she said. "They get to know a lot of girls 
from other schools, and they learn to relate 
and communicate." 

The Girl Scouts participated in aerobics, 
theater, community service and horseback 
riding through the program. 

Older girls attended K-State women's 
basketball games and informational career 
sessions among other events. 

LaKeisha Lawrence, Be Your Best par- 
ticipant and sixth grader at Northview El- 
ementary School in Manhattan, said she 
enjoyed working with the college volun- 
teers because they seemed to be in touch 
with the girls. 

"When you're listening to rap music," 

Lawrence said, "they are probably listening 
to the same thing, and the older ones don't." 

The girls also said the felt that they could 
confide in the volunteers, Lawrence said. 

"I talk to them about what happens at 
school," Lawrence said. "They ask if I have 
a boyfriend and I can tell them the truth. 
They are real nice and friendly and you 
could tell them anything and they won't 
tell anyone." 

Sumner said she thought 
the Be Your Best program 
was beneficial to both the 
college students and the 
young girls enrolled in the 

"Volunteers from 

Marlene Howell's women's 
studies class got to see how 
the activities affect the girls 
by social class, gender, etc.," 
Choitz said. 

Education students also 
benefted from what the pro- 
gram had to offer. 

"As a future teacher, I get 
exposure to kids, and since 
it's outside the classroom, it's a lot less 
structured, so we get to know the girls 
better," she said. 

Girl Scouts became guinea pigs for future 
teachers who were eager to test educational 
practices on students. 

"The College of Education students are 
getting hands-on experience with the things 
that they are learning in theory in the class- 
room," Vickie Choitz, co-coordinator ot 
the program and senior in political science, 
said. "The girls seem to be more active after 
they go through the program." 

Choitz said she thought the eagerness of 
the girls was due to the variety of activities 
provided by the program.

"I think a lot of it is that they are doing 
different things than they would usually get 
to do after school," Choitz said. "It increases 
their abilities and confidence by knowing 
that they can do these things." 

She took over Be Your Best after the 
program's failure in fall 1994. Only 10 Girl 
Scouts were involved the first semester of 
the revised program, but numbers increased 
to 83 middle and grade school girls and 35 
college students in fall 1995. 

"I think the main problem in the past was 
that they weren't planning activities that 
would interest the girls," Choitz said. "They 
need active things to do that will also be 

Surrounded by positive role models, the 
girls learned that success could be achieved 
and was within their grasp, Jeana Bolton, 
program specialist and senior in speech com- 
munication, said. 

"We have a lot of younger girls from a 
lower socio-economic status and from single 
parent households," Bolton said. "They see 
successful people who have not only made it 
through high school but are making it 

through college." 

The program was underwritten by orga- 
nizational grants from the Manhattan Yes 
Fund in fall 1995. 

"We receive grants by semester," Bolton 
said. "Funding is up in the 
air until the last minute." 

Without proper funding, 
the positive effects of the 
program would be lost. 

"We can't change the 
world through a 12-week 
program," she said. "We 
need to keep going, but we 
have to have the funding to 
do it." 

According to Sumner, 
the program seemed to suc- 
ceed in making the girls feel 
better about themselves. 

"They get added self-es- 
teem because it's all posi- 
tive. No negative comments 
are allowed," Sumner said. "They learn to

docents and management interns at the Sun-

was more than textbooks and black boards 
— it also involved taking care of lions, tigers 
and bears. 

Zoo training provided hands-on experi- 
ence that helped zoo interns and docents 
build on classroom activities.

educating people about them. 

"I thought it would be a good place to 
start gaining zoo experience," she said. "It 
helped me gain experience for admittance 
to vet school." 

During the docent program, animals were 
brought in each week to teach students facts 
about each animal. With this information, 
docents gave fact-based tours, Mouradian 

One week's animal was a three-inch long 
Madagascar cockroach. 

"It was about the size of my palm," 
Mouradian said. "It was a very clean crea- 
ture with hooks on its feet so it could hold 
on if you turned your hand upside down." 

After completing the training program, 
students worked various jobs at the zoo. 

"I work at the ticket booth tor a job, and 
I also volunteer as a docent," Madden said. 

As a volunteer, she began planning for 
her future. 

"I'd like to start out as a zookeeper and 
move up from there," she said. 

Obtaining the title zookeeper, required 
more thanjust the obvious. Docents did not 
just give tours; they also assisted in providing 
education through the animals. 

"I'm in docent training because I think 
zoos are really neat and I want to become a 
zoo veterinarian," Mouradian said.

-Martin Godlove 


(continued from page 126) 

Martin Godlove, junior in fisheries and 

wildlife biology, started working as a docent 

at the zoo three years ago helping with 

animal behavioral studies. He later became 

an intern at the zoo. 

"My time spent at the zoo 
is never routine. There's al- 
ways something new and dif- 
ferent to do," Godlove said. 
"One day I'm cleaning cages 
in the primate building, the 
next, I'm attending meetings 
with administrators." 

To meet their internship 
requirements, students com- 
pleted a 50-hour project that 
included education, research 
and animal management. 
Godlove developed a program that al- 
lowed Boy Scouts to earn merit badges for 
learning about nature and mammals. 

"I was involved with Boy Scouts through- 
out grade school and high school," Godlove 
said. "I decided this would be a great area to 

focus my project." 

About five students participated in the 
internship program each semester, working 
one-on-one with administrators and animal 
keepers. All interns were required to also be 
docents, Angie Fenstermacher, director ot 
marketing and development at Sunset Zoo, 

"(The internship) is an intense program 
with a high success rate," Fenstermacher 
said. "Because our staff works by the side of 
zookeepers, administrators and maintenance 
staff, our interns develop the skills and talent 
necessary to find a good job." 

Upon their completion of the 720-hour 
internship program, two of the Sunset Zoo 
student interns went on to become director 
of the Abilene Zoo in Abilene, Texas, as 
well as the Sedgwick County Zoo director 
in Wichita, Schanee Johnson, curator ot 
education, said. 

"The majority of zoo-internship gradu- 
ates do end up getting positions at other 
zoos," Johnson said. "Students leave our 
program knowledgeable and well-trained."

It's kind of like adding

It's not changing anything they 
previously did. It's just adding

pasteurization, a process developed at K-State, 
could revolutionize the beef slaughter indus- 
try, making meat safer for consumption and 
bringing the University national attention. 

The agriculture department was se- 
lected by Cargill and Frigoscandia, food pro- 
cessing equipment companies, to conduct a 
13-month test to determine 
the effectiveness of a process 
tor killing bacteria that 
caused diseases in humans. 

"It's kind of like adding 
mousse to your hair when 
you normally only wash and 
dry it," Abbey Nutsch, re- 
search assistant and graduate 
student in food science, said. 
"It's not changing anything 
they previously did. It's just 
adding one more step." 

The process took the 
carcass through a 32-foot 
steam chamber to kill Salmo- 
nella, E. coli and Listeria. 
"The pressurized cham- 
ber causes the steam to condense like a 
blanket on the carcass and heat it up to about 
200 degrees Fahrenheit," Randall Phebus, 
assistant professor of animal sciences, said. 
"When it condenses, it kills the bacteria." 
Nutsch gathered 1 40 samples from beef 

carcasses to test the effectiveness of the new 

The promising results were to be sent to 
the Department of Agriculture during No- 
vember, Phebus said. 

"Assuming the data looks as good as we 
think it does, the USDA Food Safety and 
Inspection Service will approve the steam 
pasteurization chamber to go into many 
slaughter chambers across the United 
States," he said. 

He called the steam pasteurization de- 
velopment an engineering feat that could 
redeem the beef industry for the first time 
since the 1992 Seattle, Wash. Jack in the Box 
scare that killed seven children and made 
more than 500 people sick. 

"This is the most exciting time that 
we've seen in the last several decades of the 
meat industry," Phebus said. 

Cargill and Frigoscandia selected the 
University to do the tests because it was 
known for its beef safety testing. Although 
K-State had no claim to the patent, Phebus 
said the research could bring in more grants 
and national recognition. 

"The thing about this product is that it's 
so unique," Nutsch said. "It's once in a great 
while that someone comes up with a new 
process that we can evaluate and get to the 
commercial level so quickly."

esse ames- 

professor's project took steps to end century- 
old debates over the identity of who was 
buried in an infamous outlaw's grave. 

In 1882, Jesse James was killed and 
buried at the James farm under a tree. 

Around the turn of the century, his wife 
was buried at the Mount Olivet Cemetery in 
Kearney, Mo. James was exhumed to be 
reburied beside his wife. 

"It was a wet, rainy day as they lifted the 
coffin out of the ground, and the bottom fell 
out of the coffin," Dr. Michael Finnegan, 
professor of social anthropology and social 
work, said. "All the bones fell out of the 
coffin. They picked up all of the bones — of 
course they didn't — but they picked up 
everything they could see." 

James was then put in a new casket and 
buried at the cemetery, he said. 

Finnegan's first analysis of James was in 
the late 1970s. He examined the bones that 
fell out of the coffin at the original burial site. 

In his second analysis, Finnegan studied 
the remains buried next to James' wife. The 
bones were analyzed at K-State from July 20 
to Oct. 27. Many long nights went into the 
analysis while the remains were at the Uni- 

"The long hours are part of the job, it 
doesn't matter that it was Jesse James," he said. 

James was returned to Missouri for 
reburial Oct. 27. 

"Legally, the remains were to be rebur- 
ied 90 days after the exhumation, but putting 
Jesse James back in the ground on the 31st of 
October, being Halloween, would be just a 
little gruesome," Finnegan said. 

Cemetery in Kearney, Mo., on Oct. 28. 

"I was happy to finally get him out of 
here because that meant that part of the 
analysis was over," Finnegan said. "It also 
meant TV stations wouldn't be calling to 
photograph anymore." 

Two graduates, Dan Kysar, 1991 gradu- 
ate in anthropology, and Stephanie Teasley, 
1995 graduate in anthropology, assisted 
Finnegan in his analysis of James. 

Bringing the alumni back to the Uni- 
versity to analyze James was 
good for the graduates be- 
cause it gave them experi- 
ence, Finnegan said. 

Anthropology students 
agreed the analysis had sev- 
eral positive effects. 

"I thought it was great 
that K-State had such a big 
part of it and that Finnegan 
actually got invited to do it," 
Amanda Cook, sophomore 
in anthropology, said. "I 
think it shows a lot of our 
professors' qualifications." 

The publicity was good for the anthro- 
pology department, Karen Book, senior in 
anthropology, said. 

"Our program is not very big and I think 
this drew a lot of attention to it," she said. 

The national attention could help in the 
anthropology department and beyond, 
Finnegan said. 

"Seeing K-State's name in print makes it 
an up-and-coming place, so people will 
come here," Finnegan said. "It'll get out that

them the chance to partici- 
pate in parent conferences, 
classroom control and teach- 
ing lessons in an environ- 
ment where they get feed-

university supervisor," Kurtz said. 

Johnson said when he began student 
teaching, he did not know exactly how to 
relate to elementary children and what sort of 

disciplinary techniques to use. 

"I was pretty nervous," Johnson said. "I 
really thought the little kids would walk all 
over me." 

After spending time in elementary 
physical education at Woodrow Wilson and 
Northview elementary schools in Manhat- 
tan, he said he learned to take control right 
away and set limits when managing the class. 

Kena Tague, senior in English, said at first 
she had been concerned about how close in age 
she was with her Manhattan High School 
English students. This concern was laid to rest 
after entering the classroom, she said. 

"It's a lot more comfortable and easier 
than I thought it would be in front of the 
kids," Tague said. 

"We may be pretty close in age, but 
college and high school are worlds apart. 
They think I'm old, and I feel old." 

As a student teacher, Tague planned 
literature units for both her sophomore and 
freshman English classes. 

"It's pretty difficult because you have to 
think of something to do every day, remem- 
ber your objectives for testing and tie it all 
together," she said. "It's more difficult before 
you begin teaching because you don't really 
know how long things take."

"With all the resources available 
from textbooks, other student teach- 
ers and trom my cooperating 
teacher, I had plenty to do," he said. 

Graduate students also spent time 
in classrooms as student teachers. 

Stephanie Dyck, graduate stu- 
dent in special education, worked 
with Manhattan students with learn- 
ing and behavioral disorders. 

"Kids with learning disabilities 
are taught learning strategies," Dyck 
said. "With kids with behavioral dis- 
orders, part of it is teaching them 
social skills and how to interact with 
other people." 

In addition to teaching, 
practicums were responsible for 
writing lesson plans and tests. 

"I write my own units, make up 
my own composition assignments 
and handouts, and assign grades," 
Tague said. 

One of the things Tague found 
to be difficult was 'writing the tests. 

"It's difficult when you are used 
to college tests to decide how much 
high school sophomores should 
know," she said. "I mostly go on 

what I think they should know." 

Student teachers kept a journal 
and collected their assignments to 
create a portfolio of their classroom 
time. This information was turned in

After testing her 
skills in the classroom, 
Tague said she would 
feel more comfortable 
conducting a class of

"I felt much more

"I'm not quite ready 
for my own class, but 
I'm definitely getting 
the hang of it." 

William Shakespeare's "Romeo and 
Juliet" provides a discussion topic for 
Tague during an advanced freshman 
English class. Tague had worried 
about teaching students who were 
close in age to her, but those early 
worries subsided throughout the 
semester. "We may be pretty close in 
age, but college and high school are 
worlds apart," she said. "They think

Student Teachers- 


a health-conscious society, students were 
always looking for guilt-free snacking alter- 

Because of this health kick, a seven- 
member team of students and faculty worked 
on developing a low-fat, nutritious snack. 
"We are a nation of snackers," Carole 
Setser, professor of foods and nutrition, said. 
"We want to develop a product that people 
could sit in front of the television at night 
and indulge in without feeling guilty." 

The bite-size snacks were shaped like 
miniature bread loaves, Carol Klopfenstein, 
professor of grain science and industry, said. 
The snacks were made from corn flour and 
other additives. 

"The snacks are crisper than bread. They 
have waffle-cone textures 
and look like fine-grained 
bread," she said. "They're 
crunchy like waffle cones." 
An extrusion process was 
used to make the snack. The 
process, using high tempera- 
tures and elevated pressure, 
was a popular food process- 
ing method that required 
little baking, Klopfenstein said. 
"Extrusion is a continu- 
ous process and it can run 24 
hours a day," Shanna 
Claytor, graduate student in 
grain science, said. "You can 

make more products faster, and profit can be 

Developers had not yet begun working 
on the snack's taste, as they had been focus- 
ing more on the texture of the product. 

"Achieving the nutritional quality is easier 
than achieving sensory characteristics, " Setser 
said. "We can accomplish a product, but not 
necessarily great sensory characteristics. 

"We are worried not just about taste, but 
also texture properties," she said. "We have 
to achieve satisfactory texture properties." 

These properties included brittleness, 
crunchiness, hardness and crispness. 

"Right now we're looking at how prop- 
erties are changing when we change the 
conditions. Each condition alters so many 
things that it is very unpredictable," Setser said. 

Previously published formulas provided a 
base recipe for the nutritional snack. 

"Ultimately, we will look at characteris- 
tics of products that are already on the 
market," Setser said. "We'll then see how 
close we are to achieving those characteris- 
tics that appeal to the market." 

Klopfenstein originally came up with the 
idea for the project, which the team had 
been working on for three years. 

"We're making good progress. Right 
now it's just good, not outstanding," 
Klopfenstein said. "When we have a really 
good product, it is almost a guaranteed 
success in the market place."

and industry, tastes a sample of the extruded

deformity, the cattle's ear canals were 

only as large as a needle point. In spite 

of the deformities, the cattle were usually 

in good health.

Deformed Cattle- 

with distorted mouths, separated noses and 
disfigured limbs inspired two students to 
continue the work of a deceased professor. 

For the past 27 years, the K-State 
Research Farm targeted mutations ot the 
ears, limbs, face and skin of cattle. 

Horst Leipold, professor of pathology, 
began his research in 1968. When he died in 
April 1995, he had discovered 23 different 

Of the 10-15 cattle researched, two 
split-faced Holsteins, Funny Face and Silly 
Face, had the most apparent disorders. 

"We are lucky to have these (cattle)," 
Vrenda Pritchard, graduate student in animal 
science, said. "They are the only ones (with 
this genetic defect) that we know of in the 

One of the cattle's horns projected side- 
ways from its head and its mouth was in the 
middle of its nose with a nostril on each side. 
The animal's teeth protruded from the open- 
ing, revealing a throat full of chewed hay. 

"That's Funny Face, one of our better 
known cows on the farm," Pritchard said. 
"She was Dr. Leipold's favorite, probably 
because she was the first that we had ever 

Through his research, Leipold de- 
veloped a network of people concerned 
with genetic disorders, including Lloyd 
Willard, instructor of diagnostic medicine 
and pathology, who started working with 
him in the late '60s. 

"He was always very willing to go out on 
a limb," Willard said. "I think that was how 
he discovered a lot of the problems." 

Genetic research of cattle continued 
when Pritchard and J.J. Edwards, senior in 
animal sciences and industry, picked up where 
Leipold left off. 

Many of the cattle they worked with had 
been donated by local farmers hoping to find 

a reason for mysterious defects that had 
appeared in their herds. 

"Many times Dr. Leipold would receive 
calls from distressed fanners who had found 
some form ot defect in the offspring ot their 
cattle," Pritchard said. "He could usually tell 
what was wrongjust by talking to the tanner 
over the phone." 

Because the cattle were donated on a 
confidential basis, pictures could only be 
taken for educational use. 

"People don't want these pictures getting 
out," Pritchard said. "They are atriad that 
people will find out and think there is 
something wrong with their entire herd." 

In spite of their appearances and genetic 
disorders, most of the cattle required no 
special attention. 

"Really, the only thing 
they may need is a little tender 
loving care," Pritchard said. 

Edwards said he hoped 
the experience he gained 
from working with the 
animals would help him. 

"It's been a give-and- 
take deal, but I like doing 
things like this," Edwards 
said. "It has broadened my 
laboratory techniques and 
will look good on a resume." 

Working with physi- 
cally disabled animals was 

"The appearance I didn't 
mind. I felt sorry for them at 
times," Pritchard said. "Itjust 
bothered me that there are 
animals like this out there 
and no one was doing 
anything about it. I guess 
working with them helped 
to take the sting away."

student companion chased a little boy down the 
hall. The little boy dodged a group of parents to make 
it to his destination — the face-painting room. 

The student companion was a member ol the 
Council for Exceptional Children and the little boy was 
in a family with a disabled child. 

Family Enhancement Weekend, sponsored annually 
by Families Together, a nonprofit organization, helped 
parents of disabled and special needs children learn about 
available educational resources for their children. 

About 1 to 1 5 CEC members worked as compan- 
ions for the disabled and special needs children Nov. 
11-12 during the event at the Manhattan Hohdome. 

"Basically, when we have a family enhancement 
weekend, the parents can get to know the things they need 
to know and not worry about where their kids are," Patty 
Gredel, executive director of Families Together, said. 

While the parents attended sessions, their children 
remained with companions who entertained them with 
activities such as decorating cookies, putting on lake 
tattoos and watching movies. 

"We have 40 companions, one-on-one for each 
child," Gredel said. 

CEC helped with Family Enhancement Weekend 
every year. 

"We work closely with K-State," Gredel said. "A 
lot of the students are going into special education and 
this is good experience." 

Although the weekend was spent with special needs 
children, Kristen McGrath, club president and senior in 
elementary education, said CEC's membership was not 
limited to special education majors. 

"The organization is not just for people who are 
going into special education," she said. "We open the 
meetings up for anyone going into teaching." 

Debbie Munson, club vice president and senior in 
elementary education, said the important part of work- 
ing with disabled and special needs children was under- 
standing they were like other children. 

"I learned that children with disabilities are just like 
normal children," she said. "They love to play and they 
are interested in music and reading."

rading in their ID's for a tray of balls, students chalked 
up savings while playing pool in the K-State Student 
Union Recreation area. 

The Union Rec center had sponsored billiards leagues 
since 1978. 

John Garetson, assistant manager ol Union Recre- 
ation Services, said for $1.75 students could compete in 
individual competitions or $1.25 entered them in a 
doubles competition as part of a 10-week tournament. 

"It's a lot cheaper (than playing in area bars)," Mike 
Shirley, senior in agronomy, said. "You are saving quite 
a few bucks in one night of playing pool there." 

Singles games were Monday and Tuesday evenings 
while doubles played Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Players said the league was a good idea, but they 
wished more students participated. Between 50 and 60 
students played each semester, Garetson said. 

"There are more teams than in the past, but I think 
that it needs more publicity," Shirley said. "I think if 
students knew more about it, there would be even more 

C.W. Cheney, senior in recreation and parks admin- 
istration, said the tournaments helped students relax and 
provided them an escape from school work. 

"It's a break in the everyday routine," Cheney said. 
"It's a good extracurricular activity. I think more people 
should participate to really fill out the leagues nicely." 

Weather conditions were a variable in student par- 
ticipation. Numbers decreased during the fall because 
weather was still nice and people wanted to be outside, 
Garetson said. 

"During the spring, numbers are up because it's still 
dark and cold at night so they'll call in and play in a 
league," he said. 

The most beneficial aspect of the tournament was 
that it was a cheap way for students to play pool, 
Garetson said. 

"It's an extremely inexpensive way for them to spend 
their money, " he said. "Their entire league bill could be 
spent somewhere else in one night." 

Players met before league play started and discussed 
whether or not they wanted to provide awards for the 
winners. If they decided to have awards, the players had 
to foot the bill for the trophy or plaque. 

"We decided to not go with the trophy, but to offer 
some cash prizes," Shirley said. "It costs $12 to $14 to 
play in the tournament and some people have also paid 
an extra $10. At the end of the tournament the top 
three places will split up the money in the pot." 

Many students involved weren't out for a trophy. 

"I'd say half are there to compete and the other half 
are there to have fun," Cheney said. "It really mixes 

Most students involved in the tournaments were 
men, but the women who played did not feel intimi- 
dated, Lindsay Mallory, freshman in engineering, said. 

"They're a lot of fun to play with," Mallory said. 
"We haven't met anyone who didn't want to play us 
because we were girls." 

Some doubles teams had played together for several 
semesters. Cheney and Shirley had played together for 
three semesters and said they had an advantage because 
of their experience. 

"You kind of know how each other shoots and 
know they're dependable," Cheney said. "Knowing 
how they respond to certain things is also good for the

he ceramists' steady hands transformed mounds of 
clay into one-of-a-kind pots. 

Members of the Potters' Guild sold their handmade 
pots Nov. 29 in the K-State Student Union. The sales, 
which continued throughout the year, raised money for 
members to attend the National Conference of Educa- 
tion of Ceramic Arts in Rochester, N.Y. 

Of the 15 club members, 13 planned to attend the 
National Conference Mar. 19-23. 

"A lot of hard work goes into getting us there," 
Sonya PauKune, Potters' Guild president and graduate 
student in fine arts, said. "Without the money, we could 
not have gone." 

Partial proceeds from the pottery sales went directly 
to the Potters' Guild club while other revenue was 
donated to the creators for purchasing supplies. 

PauKune said on a day when 100 percent of the 
proceeds went towards the Potters' Guild, the club made 
between $200 and $500, totaling about $1 ,000 per year. 

"When we started, we didn't make as much money 
as we wanted. We tried to develop ways to increase our 
sales so the students don't have to pay as much for the 
conventions," PauKune said. "Some of our ideas come 
from other universities and what they are trying to do to 
promote their schools." 

The annual conference allowed members to learn 
ceramic trends, view demonstrations, attend workshops 
and exhibits and meet professional ceramists. 

"It really gives the person who goes to the conference 
a lot of exposure to the ceramics world," Elisa Stalker 
Coats, fund raising chairman and graduate in fine arts, said. 

Members who attended the national conference set up 
a booth to educate other ceramists about K-State's program. 

"We try to stress for graduate students, the facilities 
we have, the size we are and the professors who they will 
be working with," PauKune said. "We want the students 
to know the beauty and atmosphere of the campus and 
get involved in anything in the art department."

n preparation for the next day's Homecoming foot- 
ball game, an audience of about 700 listened as the Men's 
Glee Club and alumni sang fight songs of the Big 8 
Conference schools. 

Inviting alumni to sing with the Glee Club during 
the Big 8 fight song medley had become a club tradition. 

"I like singing with the alumni and I like seeing the 
actions that they did back in their day," Chris Collins, 
sophomore in arts and sciences, said. 

The Nov. 3 concert in All Faiths Chapel also 
included performances by the Women's Glee Club and 
the K-State Singers. 

"It's a good opportunity for families to come and hear 
their students," Jerry Polich, Men's Glee Club director, said. 

In addition to the Homecoming concert, the club 
traveled to the Wildcats' football game at Nebraska Oct. 
21, where they performed with the NU Men's Glee 

Club and sang the National Anthem at the football 
game. The club usually traveled to an away Big 8 football 
game once a year. 

Polich said the future held a slight change for the 
Men's Glee Club. Although students had enjoyed a 
medley of Big 8 fight songs, members would have to start 
learning the Big 1 2 fight song medley. 

The membership varied from semester to semester, 
but the club usually had about 60 members, mostly non- 
music majors, Polich said. 

Although singing did not directly relate to his major, 
Lance Rosenow, senior in elementary education, said it 
helped relieve stress and allowed him to experiment 
with music. 

"I was in orchestra from fourth grade to when I 
graduated from high school," he said. "I wanted to see 
what I could get out of my voice."

artin Luther King Observance Week promoted 
King's legacy and dream for equality, in spite of a one- 
week delay. 

After an extended winter vacation, Alpha Phi Alpha 
fraternity kicked oft" the week with a candlelight vigil 
that followed a Memorial Walk from Waters Hall to All 
Faiths Chapel Jan. 22. 

Omar Davis, junior in psychology, said the fraternity 
honored King because of his involvement in the frater- 
nity and his timeless message. 

"During the '60s, there was a lot of injustice going on 
in the United States and King thought the only solution 
was equality," Davis said. "A lot oi our generation 
forgets what our parents went through to achieve King's 

Bernard Franklin, assistant dean of student lite, spoke 
at the vigil about King and his ability to face conflict. He 
urged African- American students to use conflict as a tool 
for progress rather than a reason to give up. 

"Black students, if they graduate, have learned how 
to survive in a largely white environment," Franklin 
said. "College is more of a learning experience for black 
students than for white students." 

Franklin said he admired King because he was not 
afraid to try to change the world. 

"King had a great deal of courage," he said. "He got 
out of his comfort zone. Students now lack the courage 
to challenge others and their beliefs and say, 'I don't 
want to be friends with you if you're going to say things 
like that,' or to say that they don't want to be friends with 
just people of their own race." 

Janet Smith, junior in modern languages, said the 
observance was beneficial for the University. 

"(King) paved the road to keep us from struggling," 
she said. "We needed something to overcome the 
prejudice on this campus." 

During the week, the residence halls focused on 
educating students about diversity, acceptance and self

"Judge or Be Judged" was a program in Derby 
Dining Center Jan. 24 sponsored by the Department of 
Housing and Dining Services. 

Student leaders acted out controversial roles, includ- 
ing a resident assistant who sold drugs and a woman who 
refused to date people who weren't of her race. 

About 28 students attended the event and were 
encouraged to ask questions and think about how the 
actors handled the situations. 

"(The program) is a really good way to get people 
talking and to relax," Shannon Cox, sophomore in pre- 
veterinary medicine, said. "They don't worry about 
what they're going to say first. It comes from the gut 
because it goes so fast." 

She said the program helped students see things in a 
different light. 

"It showed that these people could be anybody and 
that you can't tell by just looking at them," Cox said. 
"For example, when the first guy came in, the audience

saw a big handsome guy, but he started acting like a 
butthole. The second guy was little and innocent- 
looking and they found out he's a drug dealer." 

The College of Education sponsored a Jan. 25 
seminar, "Education and Non-Violence: Questions 
Children Ask." 

Education students questioned and listened to a 
panel of elementary, middle and high school students 
talk about King's anti-violence opinions. 

The week ended Jan. 26 with an All-University 
Convocation Lecture, "When the Silent Should Speak," 
by Patricia Russell-McCloud, renowned orator and 
president of Russell-McCloud and Associates. 

Because of the growing cultural diversity on cam- 
puses nationwide, college had become an opportunity 
for cultural growth, Davis said. 

"A lot of people who come here haven't really been 
exposed to other cultures," he said. "We need to use the 
growing diversity here as a chance to learn more about 
other people's cultures and accept them."

ircle-K members reached out to the community with 
their paint brushes. 

Members of the community service organization 
met Oct. 8 at the house of Ingeborg Gibbons, Manhattan 
resident, to paint her carport and fence, chores Gibbons 
couldn't do herself. 

"I'm always really pleased to be helping people out 
and to be doing something worthwhile," Ara Schlaman, 
club president and sophomore in biology, said. "I like to 
go out and meet people in the community and I've met 
a lot of interesting people this way." 

The 20-member organization became involved with 
the project through Michele Lynch, executive director 
of the HOME program. 

HOME was a service that organized maintenance 
and repairs for low-income senior citizens and disabled 
homeowners, Lynch said. Circle-K participated in other 
projects through HOME, including cleaning out 
basements and doing yard work for area residents. 

"Most of our clients are women over 62 living on less 
than $8,000 a year," she said. "So what we try to provide 
is a low-cost or no-cost repair service where we do things 
like mow lawns, clean gutters, paint or fix windows." 

Circle-K's goal was to complete at least one 
community service project each month. Besides helping 
with the HOME project, members also had fund raisers 
for their national service project. 

"The biggest thing we work on is raising money for 
Iodine Deficiency Disorders," Jeff Bond, senior in 
mathematics, said. "There are 1.5 billion people in Circle- 
K worldwide and we are trying to raise $100,000 for IDD." 

He said the group had raised $200 locally and more 
than $50,000 on the national level. 

"Circle-K's goal is to raise $100,000 and Kiwanis' 
goal is higher than that," he said. "Every $50,000 buys 
one new salt ionization plant, which saves over one 
million people from IDD." 

The people who benefited from Circle-K's projects 
were thankful for the group's work. 

"I asked the kids if they get college credit for this and 
they said 'No,' " Gibbons said. "I am really glad for the 
help. You don't find many kids like this."

taying on a bucking 2, 800-pound bull for eight 
seconds was the name of the game at the first KSU Bull 
Mania Nov. 1 1 

"I think it helped us to be seen as a strong enough 
organization on campus and within the community to 
be able to put on an annual rodeo and special event like 
this," Jeff Gibson, KSU Rodeo Club president and 
senior in animal science and industry, said. "It was a 
success in that everybody I've talked to enjoyed it and 
said they'd come back if we did it again." 

The event, sponsored by the rodeo club, provided 
an opportunity for members ot the KSU Rodeo Team 
to gain experience. 

"The club and team came together and worked 
well," Matthew Badsky, club member and junior in 
agriculture technology management, said. "It was defi- 
nitely successful tor us." 

The rodeo club chose 40 of the 70 to 80 applicants 
to participate in first-round events. Only 10 riders could 
qualify for the final round. 

The chosen bull riders paid a $100 entry fee. 

Raymond Wessel, 1995 Professional Rodeo Cow- 
boys Association circuit champion and Cedar Point 
resident, won the final round after receiving 74 points 
out of 100 in the first round and 86 points in the finals. 
Several competitors were past rodeo champions, 
life-long bull riders, and PRCA cowboys. Some of the 
bulls were ridden in the National Rodeo Competition. 

"The bull riders who came to this event saw a high- 
class production that went off well," Jimmy White, club 
rodeo chairman and senior in animal sciences and 
industry, said. "Everybody enjoyed themselves."

Center volunteer 
listens to a caller 
on a Friday night 
at the center. 
The FONE Center 
averaged five 
calls a night and 
provided coun- 
seling for nearly 
1 ,500 students a 
year. (Photo by

screening process 
that included 
training and 
seminars at the 
center. (Photo by 
Scott Ladd) 

hile the FONE Crisis Center was easy to reach on 
the phone, the organization's office became increasingly 
hard to find. 

"The Center was started by an education major 26 
years ago," Lynn Wootton, FONE Center coordinator 
and senior in psychology, said. "It offered two services 
that consisted of a walk-in service and a phone center." 

Walking in was difficult because in June, the services 
moved from the UFM House to Fairchild Hall. Another 
move to Edwards Hall, would give the center a perma- 
nent home in the spring. 

"We have been displaced for the last year because the 
location in Edwards was not ready for us to move in," 
Wootten said. 

Education majors compiled a questionnaire about 
who students turned to with their problems. 

"Peers were the top choice," Wootten said. "That's 
who we have working here." 

The center offered guidance and limited counseling 
for nearly 1,500 students a year. 

Carolyn McClaskey, FONE Center adviser, said 
callers benefited from talking to the center's volunteers. 

"We are just a foundation," she said. "We don't tell 
patients what to do. We let them try to figure out what 
to do for themselves." 

The center's 30 volunteers provided callers advice 
ranging from what medication was safe with alcohol to 
suicide counseling. 

"The volunteers get experience for a psychology or 
social work career," McClaskey said. "(They also ben- 
efit) from their self fulfillment of helping someone." 

Before a volunteer could answer the center's phones, 

they had to pass an interview screening process and 
attend 12 hours of training. 

This included listening to guest speakers, role playing 
and having group discussions, Jake Arnett, FONE Cen- 
ter co-coordinator and junior in psychology, said. 

"We ask for volunteers to have some experience 
dealing with delicate decisions," Wootton said. "Obvi- 
ously you have to have some maturity, but we also look 
for how effectively people can be non-biased. Our 
organization has no political stand, and that allows us not 
to have any level of problem adapting to whatever 
situation is presented." 

Although the FONE Center screened applicants, it 
seldom turned away volunteers. 

"We don't honestly tell anyone that they can't attend 
training," Wootton said. "At some point in time, if they 
aren't up to the phone portion of the position, then we 
offer other organizations that can keep them active. It's 
OK for them to say that they don't think they can handle 
it. We understand." 

When calls took tolls on the volunteers, the center 
helped them deal with the aftermath. 

"Mostly, we cope just by talking to one another," 
Arnett said. "We have levels for them to go through 
ending with psychologists. If for some reason they have 
more problems, we can refer them to our advisory board. " 

The volunteers were reminded that some matters 
were out of their control. 

"We always tell (the volunteers) that they are never 
responsible for what a person does on the other end," 
Wootton said. "We tell them to let the organization take 
over, and that they are separate from that."

nightmares for some, but a two-year Classy Cat veteran 
took it all in stride. 

Jennifer Collier, sophomore in arts and sciences, 
performed in the pre-game show of Super Bowl XXX 
Jan. 28 in Tempe, Ariz. 

Most performers in the show were chosen by Ameri- 
can Allstar, a dance company Collier taught camps for 
every summer. 

Of the estimated 400 performers, 250 were local 
Tempe dancers who auditioned for positions in the 
American Allstar performance. 

"The president of our company, Lesslee Fittsmorris, 
choreographed the show," Collier said. "This is her 1 1th 
Super Bowl." 

Collier, a Topeka native, was used to performing for 
large crowds. 

"I performed in the Macy's Parade and went to the 
Holiday Bowl," Collier said. "I wasn't nervous. I was 
just so excited." 

By attending bowl events before the game, perform- 
ers were able to meet some of the players. 

"I met Emmitt Smith and I didn't even know who he 
was," Collier said. "We had gone to the Commissioner's 
Party that Friday night and you could just look at them 
and tell they're football players, but you don't know 

who they are because you can't recognize them out of 

Collier said her experience with the Classy Cats helped 
her prepare for the workouts before the Super Bowl. 

"I worked out the Tuesday before from 4 to 10," 
Collier said. "Actually Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 
and then Friday we had a dress rehearsal from 9 a.m. to 
6 p.m. in the stadium and then the performance on 

Collier, a leader on the Classy Cats squad, set an 
example for others on the dance team, Barb Leiker, 
Classy Cats coordinator, said. 

"She's helped out a lot and choreographed some 
halftime shows for football," Leiker said. "She's just 
been a good kid and a good example." 

Classy Cats were part of the band and they enter- 
tained at halftime of many sporting events. 

"They (Classy Cats) mean a lot to the band and they're 
good at what they do," Frank Tracz, director of bands, 
said. "They're a part of the overall picture of K-State, and 
Jennifer is a good representation of the Classy Cats." 

Collier said she planned to continue her dance career 
after college. 

"I would like to study at some other places for a while 
and then come back and open up my own studio," 
Collier said. "That's what I'd really like to do."

"I love history and the romance involved in it," Sally

Members developed accents, sewed medieval cloth-

cooking, but I would rather help someone else, because 
I haven't done much research yet," Hawley said. "I am

everyone is out to impress everyone else." 

SCA originated in 1966 when Science Fiction and 
Fantasy members in Berkeley, Calif., gathered to discuss 
the idea of a medieval recreation and re-enactment 
group, Pat McGregor, coordinator of SCA's web page, 

"In the Manhattan area, there are at least 150 
members," Holly Mayland, graduate student in ento- 
mology, said. "Almost 75 of those are K-State students." 

The society's local shire, or district, Spinning Winds 
in the kingdom of Calontir, had been around for almost 
1 1 years, Mayland said. 

Spinning Winds sponsored a demonstration Feb. 21 
in the K-State Student Union. 

Members put on a live demonstration to inform 
students about SCA's activities and explain how to 
become involved. 

"I was exposed to (SCA) at a very young age," 
Golden said. "When I came to college, it became veiy 
accessible. I found out about it through the Activities 

Every year, SCA participated in the Little Apple 
Folklife Festival, building a medieval campground and 
putting on demonstrations. 

The group participated in several other events 
throughout the year. 

"Every weekend, somewhere in this four-state area, 
there is an event," Mayland said. "At these events there 
are merchants, fighting tournaments, arts and sciences, 
court, and feast. There are also children's activities." 

Events lasted anywhere from one day to a week and 
they benefited all members involved, Golden said. 

"If you're fun-loving and not afraid of a little work 
now and again, if you love to be outdoors in the summer 
and enjoy nature, if you enjoy history and think you 
would like to experience it more on a first-hand basis, 
then you should give the SCA a try," Hawleysaid. "We 
are always ready to welcome in new time travelers."

hristian Veterinary Fellowship members took advan- 
tage of every possible opportunity to worship, socialize 
and study the Bible. 

"The Christian Veterinary Fellowship group is im- 
portant to the success of our veterinary careers and our 
walk with Christ," Julie Buzby, third-year student in 
veterinary medicine, said. "It means so much to me to 
be involved in a group where we have prayer, social 
events and fellowship." 

The non-denominational group's 25 members made 
time in their hectic schedules for weekly meetings in the 
K-State Student Union. 

"We started out meeting once a week to study the 
Bible and then we all got to know each other and started 
hanging out. I would say we bonded as Christians and 
veterinarians," Buzby said. "We expand in our Christian 
knowledge through prayer, worship and speakers."

CVF guest speakers gave members opportunities to 
learn from fellow believers, while weekly Bible studies 
and social activities provided for spiritual growth. 

"We had various speakers speak on being veterinary 
missionaries, the ethics of vets and Christianity and the 
stresses of veterinary school," Barry Schwenk, second- 
year student in veterinary medicine said. 

Members shared their faith during Christmas season 
caroling at professor's houses and the Sunset Zoo on 
Dec. 1. 

For the fall scavenger hunt, members divided into 
teams and participated in different activities around 

"We measured the statue's foot in the park, walked

he Rhapsody Ringers' performance in Leavenworth 
became a homecoming concert for three of its members. 

During the fall semester, the 1 2 bell choir members 
and their director took a road trip Nov. 19 to play at the 
United Methodist Church in Leavenworth. 

"Three ot our ringers grew up in that church," 
director Judy Scharmann said. "We went for the day, 
rang in church, had a potluck dinner and then had a 
concert that night." 

Linda Nyhart, junior in psychology, had been a 
Leavenworth resident and church member. 

"I played in the youth bell choir at the Leavenworth 
church, so it was really neat — like a homecoming 
concert," she said. "With all the people who came, it 
gave me a real sense of hometown pride." 

When the group was not traveling, they rehearsed 
weekly at the First United Methodist Church in 
Manhattan, played in church monthly, gave concerts 
and played for area parties and meetings, Scharmann 

The reason for the trip came about earlier in the 

"The church has had a big turnover of member- 
ship since the Fort is so close by," Nyhart said. "So 
they originally wanted us to come as a fall welcome- 
back concert to welcome the new and returning 

Evan Leonard, eight-year club member and univer- 
sity payroll manager, said the trip was rewarding in 
several ways. 

"It was wonderful to share our music with the other 
church, which was especially rewarding," he said. "But 
the best part of the trip was that we all took cars, which 
meant we had 2-1/2 hours to visit and get to know each 
other better because really, there's not a lot of time to 
visit during rehearsal." 

The audience listens attentively to 
the sounds of the Rhapsody Ringers 
hell choir. In addition to the Rhap- 
sody Ringers' performance in All 
Faiths Chapel Dec. 3, the K-State 
Singers, the Men's Glee Club and 
Women's Glee Club also performed. 
During the fall semester the bell 
choir consisted of 12 members, both 
men and women. The Rhapsody 
Ringers rehearsed weekly at the 
First Methodist Church in Manhattan 
for their monthly performances.

ifty green thumbs participated in events throughout 
the 75th-anniversary year of the Horticulture Club. 

The week before Halloween and the football game 
against Kansas, the club's 25 members sponsored a 
pumpkin sale Oct. 23-28. 

"We offered to paint Powercats on the sides of the 
pumpkins," Jennifer Stippich, club publicity chair and 
sophomore in horticulture, said. "Students and faculty 
showed their school spirit (by purchasing the pumpkins) . " 

Selling the pumpkins in the freespeech zone and 
Aggieville during Octoberfest made the fund raiser 
more successful than in the past. 

"The location helped the sale," James Miller, club 
treasurer and junior in horticulture, said. "We made 
about $400." 

The horticulture division, which had grown pump- 
kins for research, sold 200 to 300 of them to the club at 
a reasonable price, Eric Moore, club president and 

senior in horticulture, said. 

"We loaded up the pumpkins from the field," Moore 
said. "At the end of the sale about 10 pumpkins were left, 
so we gave them to the faculty." 

The pumpkin sale was only one money-making 
project the club sponsored. 

In April, members sold bedding plants, which was 
their largest project of the year. 

"We made about $2,500, but it takes a lot of money 
for the next year," Miller said. "We keep a big balance 
in our account to purchase the soil, pots — and most 
expensive of all — the seeds." 

The successful year was due to the members' involve- 
ment in the anniversary and the fundraising, Moore said. 

"It's been a challenge this year," he said. "The club 
has been around for 75 years and I would like to think I 
contributed by getting people involved and making it 
fun for everyone this year."

he first edition of The Students' Herald, published 
Jan. 8, 1896, became a turning point in school history, 
a time when students implemented their freedom of 
speech rights granted them more than 100 years earlier. 

About 14,500 editions and two name changes later, 
the Kansas State Collegian celebrated a century of being 
nationally known as one of the best college dailies in the 

Hugh Zey, senior in chemical engineering, said the 
Collegian was deeply rooted in school history. 

"I read the Collegian everyday," Zey said. "I think it 
is the main source of information to students regarding 
local, national and international news." 

The centennial celebration lasted throughout the 
spring semester. The first event was Jan. 8 with a 
Business After Hours social for the Manhattan Chamber 
of Commerce. With 150 people attending the event in 
the K-State Student Union, the Collegian thanked their 
advertisers and the community. 

"It was great to personally thank all of those who 
advertise with the Collegian," Ron Johnson, director of 
Student Publications, said. "If it were not for the 
advertisers, the Collegian would not exist." 

A Jan. 26 on-campus celebration in the K-State 
Student Union included speeches from President Jon 
Wefald and Student Body President Jeff Peterson. 

"It was great to talk to all the Collegian staffs from the 
past and talk about how the University has and has not 
changed," Marlett said. 

Another celebration was planned for April 18-20 at 
Manhattan Country Club. 

Aaron Otto, chairman of the Board of Student 
Publications, said it was great to celebrate 100 years of 

"The Collegian has had a rich history on this campus

have built on the past 100 years a strong foundation that

he KSU Horseman's Association brought back tra- 
dition when they hit the trail. 

Club members, along with their friends and family, 
returned to Rock Springs 4-H Center after a year-long 
break from trail-riding. 

The center was located 12 miles south of Junction 
City on a prairie. 

"You can imagine yourself riding across the Santa Fe 
Trail," J. D. Weber, senior in animal science, said. "The 
only thing you can't imagine is the Indians." 

About 15 students belonged to the Horseman's 
Association and most attended the event. 

"It (trail ride) was initially for members only, but you 
pay for a string of horses, which is 20 horses," April 
Martin, senior in animal sciences and industry, said. 
"There aren't 20 members, so we opened it up for 
members to bring a friend or family member." 

The Oct. 22 trail ride was funded by the $10 annual 

membership dues and by fundraising efforts, Weber, 
trail rides chairman, said. 

Club fund raisers, including entry fees and ticket 
revenue from their annual team competitions, paid tor 
the members' rides. 

However, non-members had to pay $5 to ride, 
Martin said. 

"My mom went with me. I was going to take my 
daughter, but it was really windy that day," she said. "It 
was fine for adults, though." 

The Horseman's Association was not just for expe- 
rienced riders, Mara Barngrover, club president and 
senior in animal science, said. 

"The club is open to anyone in the University," 
Weber said. "Basically, it's for anyone who's interested 
in horses, or knows they like horses. Our events make 
it possible for novices to learn about horses." 

(continued on page 181) 

-Horseman's Association- 


(continued from 179) 

The horses at Rock Springs Ranch were trained for 
inexperienced riders. 

"The horses are used to having 7-year-olds on their 
backs," Weber said. "They're gentle and tractable. 
They'll teach you as much as you teach them." 

Although the trails were not challenging, they brought 
members of the horse-riding community together, Martin 

"For advanced riders, it's child's play," Weber said. 
"It feels out people's skill levels and gives novices 
experience in the saddle." 

The wranglers made deviations and took club mem- 
bers on trails where they could have more saddle time, 
Martin said. 

The group received hands-on experience that would 
be useful for less-experienced riders, Martin said. 

"We saddled our own horses, and you generally 
don't get to do that. But because we were the Horseman's 
Association and most of us had some sort of experience, 
we got to saddle them," she said. "We groomed them 
down and did a lot of the things the wranglers usually do. 
We saved them some time." 

Members were able to ride less-experienced horses, 
Martin said. 

"A couple of the horses didn't have very much 
experience on the trail, so they put a couple of us with 
experience on those horses," she said. 

Trail-ride participants also toured Rock Springs' 
facilities and picnicked, Weber said. 

"After the trail rides, we brought eats with us, they 
provided a grill, and we generally enjoyed ourselves," he 

The trail rides were good for people who had horses 
at home, but had no access to them while at school, 
Martin said. 

"Anyone who's ever had a horse knows the kind of 
contact you crave," she said.

uture college leaders from around Kansas took cam- 
pus by storm. 

The nine members of the High School Leadership 
Planning Team and the Dean of Student Life office co- 
sponsored the 1 2th annual Vision '96 — A Kaleidoscope 
of Leadership in the K-State Student Union Feb. 1. 

The conference had speakers who focused on mo- 
tivating high school students to continue being leaders. 

"The main goal of the conference was to strengthen 
their leadership skills," Brian Bowen, team chairperson 
and junior in education, said. "They attended four out 
of the 16 total speakers and all attended the keynote 
speaker at the end." 

Julie Grimes, program adviser, said 374 high school 
juniors and seniors attended the event hoping to build 
leadership skills and develop them throughout college. 

Conference sponsors worked together to choose the 

keynote speaker, Cara Redhair, conference promotions 
chairperson and freshman in business administration, said. 

"He tied what he said with our theme," she said. 
"He said to open your eyes to opportunities and related 
it to a kaleidoscope." 

The keynote speaker, Rick Miller, said a kaleido- 
scope with its many different colors and shapes was 
similar to the different areas of a person's life. 

"It opened their eyes to different topics like ethics," 
Bowen said. "Also multicultural talks and leadership skills 
facilitated their journey from high school to college." 

At the end of the conference, the high school 
students gave team members feedback on the day's 
events by evaluating each program and speaker. 

"The conference was very successful and went 
smoothly," Bowen said. "It helped to generate new 
ideas for the next year."

with a new way of looking at teach-

ing how to do the concept instead of 
just listening to someone speak

Teach peace 

-by j.j. kuntz and marla sherrill- 

ombined efforts of an area teacher and the Kansas 
Student National Educators Association sponsored 
"Teach Peace: KSNEA Tie Dye '95." 

Teach Peace, the year-long KSNEA theme, fea- 
tured several speakers and activities, but Snehal Bhakta, 
KSNEA president and senior in computer engineering, 
said the Oct. 3 speaker was the most effective. 

Fran Irelan, third-grade teacher at Lee Elementary 
School in Manhattan, spoke about ways to incorporate 
new learning styles in regular units. Irelan related tie- 
dyed T-shirts to an economic unit. 

"Basically, I was showing them how I took an 
economic unit and applied it to an activity for my third- 
grade class, showing them how to combine the two, 
applying their skills to sell and applying the object," she 

Irelan's third-grade class' 2-1/2-month project re- 
quired the students to make, sell and deliver tie-dyed T- 
shirts. Students were responsible for all aspects of the 
project including marketing, advertising, public rela- 
tions, bookkeeping and personal checking system. 

Seventy students and faculty attended the KSNEA 
event. Bhakta said he could not believe how many 
comments they received about Irelan's presentation. 

"I think the most important thing about creativity is 
to make it things that the children can relate to," Irelan 
said, "something that will get themjust as excited about 
it as the teacher should be." 

During her presentation, Irelan had college students 
tie dye T-shirts, as she had done with her third graders. 

"We were experiencing how to do the concept 
instead of just listening to someone speak about it in one 
of our classes," Kristie Kerschen, KSNEA council rep- 
resentative and junior in elementary education, said. "It 
was a real hands-on experience that she related to real life 
very well." 

Teach Peace's focus was to create a better educa- 
tional environment, Bhakta said. 

"It isn't going to happen overnight. Each individual 
has to do their part," he said. The only way it will happen 
is if one person will contribute. Then it will be a domino 
effect if everyone believes."

erforming in front of a large audience became a 
passion some students could not live without. 

"Anytime there is an opportunity to become in- 
volved in a production, I jump at the chance," Caisha 
Williams, senior in theater, said. "It's that passion thing. 
People talk about having a passion for the theater and I 
think I've caught the passion bug." 

Each year, K-State Theatre sponsored five perfor- 
mances and two dance concerts. 

Eric Stonestreet, graduate student in sociology, said 
deciding to audition for "Tales of the Lost Formicans," 
Feb. 15-17 and 21-24, was not an option for him. 

"I've been doing theater for four years and this is my 
last play," he said. "It really wasn't a decision. Rather, 
when auditions come up, I audition because acting is 
what I want to do." 

Involvement in student productions was not re- 
stricted to theater majors. 

"Anyone can audition for any of our plays as long as 
they are a K-State student," Kate Anderson, director of 
"Tales of the Lost Formicans," said. "It doesn't matter if 
they are an engineering major or a theater major and we 
do try to make the auditions as user-friendly as possible 
so that non-theater majors feel they can try out." 

K-State Theatre auditions were at the beginning of 
each semester, usually during the first two days of classes, 
Anderson said. 

"We do it for a couple of reasons," she said. "One, 
we feel like we can more actively distribute the roles and 
we also feel that the students then know, at the very 
beginning of the semester, what their commitment is for 
that semester and they can plan accordingly." 

Committing to a production included practicing 
three hours a night, six nights a week, and doing 
additional preparation beyond scheduled rehearsals. 

"As far as practicing by myself, I usually put in an 
extra four hours a week working on my part," Williams 
said. "Some of the real pushes to practicing are script 
analysis as well as learning lines and cues. You have to 
work with the script a lot." 

After learning and memorizing the script, actors 
worked on developing their roles.

were scheduled Sunday through 
Wednesday prior to the final perfor- 
mance. Students in the play practiced 
with the rest of the cast three hours 
per night, six days a week. Actors 
also practiced on their own. This was 
necessary because actors not only 
had to memorize their lines, but had 
to understand their character. (Photo

"I focus a lot on my character and how I need to act 
in order to help the audience understand the charac- 
ter," Stonestreet said. "I'm a different type of actor and 
I take time getting to know my character. Becoming 
the character makes the play more interesting." 

However, getting into character was not always an 
easy task. 

"I play a 15-year-old in the play," Aaron Crispin, 
senior in radio/television, said. "It's hard to do that 
without making my character appear too old or too 
young. I have trouble with that more than anything." 

A love for acting was not the only thing that 
motivated students to audition. 

"One of the main reasons I tried out for this 
production was because I knew Kate was the direc- 
tor and I wanted to work with her before I gradu- 
ated," Williams said. "This is my first experience 
working with Kate as a director and it's been a lot of

rom raging debates in Washington, D.C., to protests 
at K-State, former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn 
Elders couldn't escape controversy. 

Speaking Oct. 5 during Racial Ethnic Harmony 
Week, Elders' pro-choice view on abortion sparked a 
picket by the Students for the Right to Life organization. 

"Elders was not lit to speak at Racial Ethnic Har- 
mony Week," Jennifer Talkington, club president and 
sophomore in speech pathology, said. "She is a pro- 
moter of pro-choice and Planned Parenthood." 

As students entered McCain Auditorium to hear the 
speech, about 15 Right to Life picketers held signs of 
protest outside and handed out pamphlets about Planned 
Parenthood's promotion of abortion and a list of Elders' 
controversial views. 

"The protesters really didn't have an effect on me," 
Katrina Stentors, junior in accounting, said. "I was, 
however, impressed with their peaceful approach. I've 
seen Fred Phelps' group and they were more in your 

While rumors had circulated that Phelps would 
picket the lecture, he failed to show up for the event. 

Atter 45 minutes ot picketing, K-State Police asked 
members of Students for the Right to Life to move away 
from the building to a grassy area on the south side of 
McCain and stop handing out pamphlets. 

"I think they were expecting a more racial group," 
Talkington said. "They told us the only free-speech area 
was over by the Union or in front of Anderson, but all 
of campus is unrestricted to free speech." 

Richard Herman, University detective, agreed dem- 
onstrations were not restricted to these areas. 

"These two areas are only suggested as places for 
such demonstrations," Herman said. "All of campus is 
open to free speech as long as groups do not block public- 
entrances or induce violence." 

Herman said the decision to ask the students to stop 
distributing the brochures was a misunderstanding and 
the students' actions were later determined to be OK. 

Talkington said Students for the Right to Life would 
continue to be seen and heard. 

"If someone doesn't agree with something, keeping 
quiet isn't going to accomplish much," she said. "You 
have to speak up to make a difference."

rofessional architects, teachers and students from 
Iowa to Oklahoma converged in Manhattan for the 
Student, Educator, Practitioner's Forum April 7-9. 

The K-State chapter of the American Institute for 
Architecture Students hosted the regional convention 
for their parent organization, the American Institute of 

"It was designed to bring educators and professionals 
together and close the gap between them," Kim Murphy, 
junior in architecture, said. "There are a lot of discrep- 
ancies between what educators and practitioners think 
are important." 

Students were allowed to sit in on the three-day 
conference and discuss how their education could be 
made more practical for the real world. 

Before the convention, participants gathered for an 
ice breaker organized by AIAS members. The partici- 
pants divided into small groups to collect puzzle pieces 

and see who could put their puzzle together first. 

"We hid the puzzle pieces in different stores along 
Poyntz and gave people clues to find them," Misty 
Hinkle, junior in interior architecture, said. "Then we 
went to a bar and put the puzzle together." 

Murphy said no one on the scavenger hunt knew 
what the completed puzzle looked like until it was put 
together to show a domed temple. 

Members did not just stay in Manhattan. Some trips 
sponsored by AIAS included Forum, a national AIAS 
convention in Oregon; Architrek, a trip to St. Louis, 
Mo., to visit the AIAS chapter at Washington Univer- 
sity; and a regional convention in Nebraska. 

"I've been to St. Louis several times so it wasn't as 
exciting as the Oregon trip," Grace Wallace, senior in 
architecture, said about Architrek. "It's always a lot of 
fun to get with other students and discuss our projects,

?er groups made members of United Methodist Church 
Campus Ministries accountable for each other. 

"The covenant discipleship groups are peer groups of 
four to six students that are student led and meet once a week, 
usually about an hour," Cindy Meyer, minister for UMC 
Campus Ministries, said. "The groups were set up as a support 
system for students." 

Support groups were not new to UMC Campus Ministries. 

"In the beginnings of the history of the church, members 
formed support groups to be accountable for each other," 
Carey Sterrett, group facilitator and sophomore in sociology, 
said. "That's what we do when we get together and talk about 
things that happen throughout the week." 

When the six peer groups met at the beginning of the 
year, each group set forth a covenant, Sterrett said. 

' 'We, as a group , decide what we want as our convenant, 
she said. "We work on things we may not be good at." 

Members had to agree before the group covenant was set 
in stone, Meyer said. 

"After the group agrees on the proposed covenant, they 
go out and try to do those things during the week," she said. 
"Then they get back together and go through the list of 

things and talk about how they did." 

Choosing a covenant was based on four areas — justice, 
compassion, worship and devotion. 

"Some of the covenants are often things like going to 
worship, reading scripture and praying," Meyer said. "And 
then some of them are more along the lines of social justice or 
mission types of things. There is supposed to be a good 

Sten'ett said her group developed a covenant based on 
what they saw as the most important aspects of the four areas. 

"In our group, part of our covenant is to go to church 
every Sunday and provide an offering, stand up for what's 
morally right, and try to acknowledge people on campus, " she 
said. "A lot of our covenant is trying to become better people 
and getting to know each other as a group." 

Involvement in the discipleship groups had increased in 
the past three years. 

"Last year there were only two or three groups and this 
year we have five," Keri Stoner, group facilitator and 
sophomore in nutrition and exercise science, said. "The 
program has been very successful and student participation has 
significantly increased."

n the fall, the K-State Marching Band, pep band and 
other ensembles heard rumors of their organizations 
possibly losing privilege fees. 

On Feb. 8, those rumors were laid to rest. The band 
was allocated 1 percent more of the privilege fees, while 
the football program lost 1 percent. 

"There was a rumor going around that the band 
might lose their privilege fee, but in actuality, this rumor 
was a misunderstanding," John Potter, chairman of 
Student Senate and junior in business administration, 

Frank Tracz, director of bands, said 95 percent of the 
bands' budget came from privilege fees. 

"We receive between $75,000 to $79,000 a year from 
privilege fees, depending on enrollment," Tracz said. 

The band used this money to pay for instruments, 
music, uniform replacement, paperwork, secretarial duties 
and instrument maintenance and repair, he said. 

"I want to be part ol a band program that is of national 

prominence, that is excellent, has lots of kids in it, that 
serves the University, and without a budget, it can't be 
done," Tracz said. 

Brent Marsh, head drum major and junior in sociol- 
ogy, said fee money was crucial to the marching band. 

"Without the money from the flat fee, the marching 
band will no longer exist," he said. "The marching band 
will decrease in size, making the band smaller than it was 
m the 1980s." 

Band membership had increased from 125 members 
two years ago to 272 members this year, Tracz said. 

"There's a universal need and usage for the marching 
band, basketball band and the other ensembles that affect 
every student here," he said. "Our numbers have almost 
tripled because of the marching band." 

Student Senate worked on a solution for allocating 
privilege fees that would affect organizations like the

"Some areas of concern that directly affect privilege 
fee groups art protecting these groups from enrollment 
decreases, not enough money tor equipment, emer- 
gency situations and no consideration for the marginal 
cost of additional students," Jeff Peterson, student body 
president and graduate student in animal science, said. 
"Our solution is that fees are tied to the number of credit 
hours, not students enrolled." 

With the 1 -percent increase, the marching band 
would receive 14 percent of the total privilege fee, Tracz 

"The true irony is that these kids pay the SGA fees to 
fund the band, pay the credit to be in the band, pay $95 
for a secondary uniform to be dressed like the band and 
they sometimes do up to 20 hours of community service 
while they are in the band," he said. "And they pay to 
do this." 

Kristine Hodges, senior in physical science, said 
although the band had dealt with not having enough 
money to support the size of the band before, it would 
have hurt them to be put on a smaller budget. 

"It would greatly disable the band as far as being able 
to get new instruments, new uniforms, repair instru- 
ments and to use practice facilities," she said. "I enjoy 
band and I'm going to do it no matter what, but 
sometimes it seems unreasonable to have us put so much 
of our own money in to be able to be in the band."

tor and sophomore in pre-medicine, 
requests her fellow senators research 
the student health privilege fee be- 
fore that next week's meeting. The 
student health fee was tabled Feb. 15 
because the senators felt uninformed 
about the fee. Lafene had asked for a 
$20 per semester increase in the stu- 
dent health fee. The proposed privi- 
lege fee increase would be a 3-per- 
cent decrease in the center's overall 
operating budget. Lafene officials said 
it was needed to compensate for a 
$2.4-million reserve, which had been 
rapidly declining since the student 
health fee was decreased from $80 to 
$70 per semester in 1994. Tabling the 
fee shortened the meeting by two 
hours, senators said. (Photo by

ot many students dealt with millions of dollars 
everyday, but those who did took their responsibilities 

Student Governing Association oversaw a privilege 
fee system of $7.7 million from fall 1995 to summer 

"Students at K-State have an incredible amount of 
power," Mark Tomb, privilege fee chairman and junior 
in economics, said. "We have been very lucky that the 
administration has allowed us to remain in control of our 
fee structure." 

In the spring, Student Senate reviewed more than 
$3.7 million in fees, including the student health fee of 
$2.5 million and the athletic fee of $600,989. 

Steve Weatherman, business senator and senior in 
marketing, said it was sometimes difficult to decide how 
to vote on legislation involving student money. 

"It's really important that students let me know how 
they feel, but it doesn't always happen that way," he said. 
"On issues when the students let me know how they 
feel, I vote according to that, but when they don't, I have 
to go with how I think they feel." 

There were sometimes disagreements among sena- 
tors about how they voted, said Chris Avila, SGA 
treasurer/ Allocations committee chair and graduate in 
counseling and educational psychology. 

"Senators get caught between loyalties," he said. 
"Student senators will vehemently disagree with each 
other based on these loyalties." 

Avila said his committee dealt with about $2.3 
million each semester and Tomb said his committee 
worked with approximately $7 million a semester. 

These committees had eight members, each who 
voted on legislation that would later go to the Senate 
floor to be voted on by the entire student governing 

Weatherman said he sometimes felt uncomfortable 
making decisions about how to spend other students' 

"I think it's a huge responsibility," he said. "I don't 
always feel comfortable with it, but I do the best I can."

oping to compete nationally, Table Tennis Club 
members took their hobby to the next level. 

"I played against a man from Germany with no arms 
and one leg," Joshua Bartel, KSU Table Tennis Club 
president and graduate student in mechanical engineer- 
ing, said. "He was incredible." 

Bartel, who said he was considered a disabled table- 
tennis player because he had extreme arthritis in his 
joints, was on reserve for the paraplegic Olympic team. 

"He is the top player on the table tennis team," David 
Surowski, faculty adviser and professor of mathematics, 
said. "What makes him unique is that he is disabled." 

Surowski said the club played an important role in the 
players' lives. 

"It is something to do that I look forward to every 
week," Bartel said. "I feel like I put (tennis) before my 
school work." 

The club had been active since July 1988, when 
Surowski and Todd Cochrane, associate professor in 
mathematics, formed the group. 

Membership fluctuated between 10 and 15 people, 
Surowski said. 

"The club is a small but intense group," he said. 
"What I see in the club is a steady growth in the players. 
Everyone rated a good 300 to 400 points higher than 
before, including myself." 

Although team members traveled to competitions 
together, they participated as individuals. Some mem- 
bers attended up to 10 tournaments a year. 

Bartel said he had seen improvements during the five 
years he had played with the club. 

"I used to be the worst player," Bartel said. "Now I 
am ranked in the top five in the state." 

Table-tennis ranking was done differently than that 
of most sports. A person's ranking was not determined 
by the number of games they won, but by how many 
points they collected by defeating higher- and lower- 
ranked opponents. 

"You go to a tournament and the other person's 
rating as compared to your own is what you are compet- 
ing against," Jason Orme, junior in accounting, said. "It 
is what determines the points you can gain or lose. You 
gain points if you win, and you lose points if you lose." 

Bartel said only three people in Kansas had more than 
2,000 points, a mark that signified a player 'was one of the 
nation's best. 

"I have 1,930 points, so hopefully in the next two to 
three tournaments I will reach 2,000," Bartel said. "My 
goal is to reach much higher than that."

lthough they needed 15 players to compete in a 
regulation game, the women's rugby team had only 12 
on their roster. 

However, low numbers didn't stop them from 
having a winning 8-3-1 season. 

The team recruited rugby players from other teams 
when participating in tournaments. 

"We have good relations with KU and they helped 
us out at tournaments when we needed it," Jennifer 
Ohmes, club president and junior mjournalism and mass 
communications, said. "Sometimes they thought they 
had won the game for us but we knew we did it 

Although the club had trouble filling the required 
slots, Julie Hix, team vice president and school of 
veterinary medicine research assistant, said this would 
not be a problem in the future because of the increase in 
returning members. 

"I've been an officer since I joined the team," she 
said. "We have a good base for officers. We're getting 
more experience because people are staying longer." 

Students and non-students could join the team. 

"I first learned about the team here at K-State from 
a table in the Union," Hix said. "I was interested in a 
team sport and I thought rugby looked good." 

Potential members were not required to be familiar 
with rugby before joining the team. 

"We have a lot of women participate from Fort 
Riley, K-State staff, and members from the commu- 
nity," Ohmes said. "We don't require any knowledge of 
the game, just a love for athletics." 

Becky Burton, team coach and graduate student in 
biology, had been involved with the women's rugby 
team since coming to K-State. 

"I love the game," Burton said. "I played for five 
years at the University of Montana and coached and 
played at Montana State before coming here. 

(continued on page 206)

(continued from page 205) 

Burton had been coaching since receiving her cer- 
tification from the USA Rugby Football Union. 

"A lot ot people don't know what women's rugby is 
about," she said. "All the rules are the same as men's 
rugby, men's is just a little faster-paced." 

Travel expenses exceeded the team's University bud- 
get, so members had car washes and cleaned Bramlage 
Coliseum to raise money to help pay expenses. 

"People were good at pitching in and doing their 
share," Burton said. "We want to make it as fun as 
possible, so we would go out to eat or attend the 
(football) game together before we worked." 

The money raised not only allowed the group to 
travel, but also helped them sponsor their own tourna- 

"We were able to host the first tournament since 
1992," Ohmes said. "We had eight teams participate 
from various states." 

The fall tournament Nov. 4-5 at Tuttle Creek State 
Park raised money for a future travel and expense fund. 
Burton said the team made about $1 ,000 from the event. 

"The tournament was the highlight of the season for 
the team," Hix said. "We all pulled together and worked 
hard. We are a close-knit group and we work together 
both on and off of the field."

versity funds and 
through fund 
raisers. The team 
also hosted their 
first tournament 
since 1992, 
which brought in 
$1,000. (Photo

The lunar new year celebration Feb . 18 was the most 
important festival in China, said Shucheng Zhang, Chinese 
Students and Scholars Association vice president and 
graduate student in pathology. 

"The festival is a time for Chinese people to get 
together with their families and friends," he said. "About 
half of Asian countries celebrate it like we do." 

The 220-member association, had organized the 
New Year celebration for the past 1 years. Members had 
the event one day earlier than the Feb. 19 holiday so 

festivities could be during a weekend. 

"I think it lets students in this country join in so they 
could learn some Chinese traditions," Zhang said. "It also 
increased the relations among the Chinese students." 

About 1,250 students attended the celebration, he 

Wei Xu, club president and graduate student in 
engineering, said members served about 15 different 
kinds of Chinese food at the event. 

"We prepared enough food to feed everybody," 
Zhang said. "People from China and Taiwan joined 
together for the event and we felt that it was very

onung to the water's surface out of breath and 
curious after following a giant sea turtle, Thomas 
Hull, Scuba Diving Club president and sophomore in 
pre-dentistry, hoped to share his fascination of the 
underwater world with others. 

"I was in the Navy when we pulled into the 
Virgin Islands. I decided to try snorkeling," Hull said. 
"I got behind this turtle and followed it. I forgot I 
needed to go up and breathe. When I got up to the 
surface I was tired, but wished that I could have 
stayed down longer." 

So Hull tried scuba diving and decided the sport, 
a technique allowing divers more time to explore, 
would be enjoyable and beneficial for other students. 

"I stood before one of Dr. Lon Kilgore's classes 
and asked if there would be any interest," he said. 
"Seeing the hands of about 10 people out of a class of 
about a 100, I felt there would be a good chance of 

Hull displayed club information in the K-State 
Student Union during the fall Activities Carnival and 
interested students signed a petition. 

"I know the response was greater than I ex- 
pected," Hull said. "Many people in Kansas can't get 
over the fact that diving isn't associated with Kansas." 

An article featuring the club was published in the 
Kansas State Collegian during the spring semester and 
the response was great, A.J. Lana, freshman in milling 
science, said. 

"I have never had the opportunity to go some- 
where nice and dive. When I read about the club in 
the Collegian, I was really gung-ho about it," Deb 
Quin, printing process supervisor, said.

"I think people who are adventurous and excited 
about scubadiving will get really involved." 

At the beginning of the spring semester, Hull 
went to the University Activities Board hoping to 
become registered and recognized as University- 
affiliated. In February, UAB notified him the club had 
been approved. 

UAB was helpful, but they weren't sure if the 
group fell under the umbrella of a sport or social 
organization, Hull said. To receive UAB funding, the 
club needed to be a sporting group. 

"If we got funding elsewhere, we could buy 
equipment the whole group could use," Lana said. 
"That would help everybody out with expenses." 

Looking for outside funding, Hull said he spoke 
with the Aggie Dive Shop owner. The club also asked 
its new members for assistance. 

"We are asking for dues from all members right 
now, $5 from full-time students and $10 from part- 
time students," Hull said. 

Although experienced divers made up the club, 
the members hoped to introduce other curious 
students to the sport. 

"It's a fast growing sport and is becoming very 
popular," Lana said. "There are places around here to 
dive but people just don't know about them." 

One benefit of the club would be the discounts 
offered through group travel rates. There were many 
nearby places to dive, such as Missouri, Oklahoma 
and Arkansas, Lana said. 

"Just because we're in Kansas doesn't mean scuba 
divers can't find an outlet," he said. "We may be able 
to get special group rates at various travel agencies, 
and that means that we can go to some real interesting 

Hull said by establishing a scuba diving club, he 
hoped to get more students hooked on the sport. 

"It's a rush of hanging over a coral reef or going 
down to explore a wreck. It's a different world," he 
said. "It's kind of one of those things that becomes an

of the club would be the discounts 
offered through group travel rates 
to nearby places in Missouri, Okla- 
homa and Arkansas. Although UAB 
was helpful, they were not sure if 
the group fell under the umbrella of

ceive UAB funding, the club needed 
to be a sporting group. Looking for 
outside funding, Hull spoke with the

a 10% discount on diving equip- 
ment. (Photo by Shane Keyser)

revolvement in the Entomology Club required an 
interest in the creepy crawlies. 

"It was a sibling rivalry thing for me. When I was 
about 3 or 4 my aunt took my sister aside and showed 
her how a June bug was fuzzy underneath," Dean 
Rider, graduate student in entomology, said. "I wanted 
to know what was going on so she showed me. 

"That was really, really neat — something you 
never notice and there it is," Rider said. "Then I 
started collecting bugs." 

With more than 15 members, the Entomology 
Club compiled insect collections to sell to high schools 
across the state. The high school students used the 
collections to study for the insect identification por- 
tion ot the Future Farmers of America regional and 
state contests, Rider said. 

"The collection has economically important in- 
sects, things that affect your household — roaches, 
termites, ants and there are insects that feed on grain," 
Bob Miller, graduate student in entomology, said. "It's 
important to companies so they don't lose money." 

Because 66 different specimens were represented in 
a collection, the club members gathered ordinary 
insects, Rider said. 

"We usually stay with the common stuff," Rider 

said. "If you have to have 60 specimens, and you have 
to collect them all over the summer, you tiy to pick 
things that you know you can collect." 

The state entomology contest April 27, hosted yearly 
by K-State, was part of the state FFA contest. The 
entomology portion of the contest attracted 150 to 200 
students, Sharon Debesh, graduate student m entomol- 
ogy, said. 

"It gives them a start so if they decide to study later 
they have the basics," Miller said. 

Although undergraduates could join the club, all 
members were graduate students, Rider said. They 
collected insects in several ways. 

"During the summer we would go to Fort Riley as 
a group and collect specimens," Rider said. "That 
turned out fairly well. We got a lot of aquatic insects." 

Insects were also gathered from captive colonies in 
the entomology department, and general entomology 
and taxonomy courses required students to compile 
extensive collections, Miller said. 

When other methods failed, the entomology club 
created a list of insects they needed, Miller said. 

"Because most of us are in entomology we like to 
collect insects. What happens is everybody kind ol

knows what insects we use for the collections," Rider 
said. "So if you're out and you happen to see a couple of 
specimens that we can use, then catch them and bring 
them in." 

After insects were gathered, free food motivated club 
members to organize their collections. 

"Our incentive to get people involved is a pizza 
party," Rider said. "We have a pizza party and people 
show up and pin bugs." 

The Entomology Club began selling the collections 
to high schools about 10 years ago. Collections cost 
about $30 each, and the Entomology Club generated 
between $800 and $900 a year from the sales, Rider said. 

The fundraising efforts paid off when the club spon- 
sored a speaker and a picnic for club members, Rider

hey used fun and games to educate others about sex. 

STD, HIV/AIDS Peer Educators, or SHAPE, spon- 
sored a program to educate members of the Black 
Student Union about diseases caused by unsafe sex. 

During the Sept. 26 presentation, BSU members 
participated in activities like the Risky Behavior Game 
in the K-State Student Union. 

"We each had a different color of postcard that 
ended up like a chain, and we were all having sex with 
each other," Ametria Tate, BSU member and sopho- 
more in sociology, said. "Basically the game taught us 
that if you had sex with one person, you have sex with 
all the people they have had sex with." 

More than 60 BSU members attended the event. 

"We learned about diseases that some never think 
about," Tate said. "Most people don't research all the 
facts, and I think it is cool to remind us about all the 

SHAPE was established through Lafene Health 
Center. Reita Currie, student health education repre- 
sentative, said the program started as a volunteer peer 
education program. Three years ago, the program 
became SHAPE, and was offered as a three credit-hour 

"The statistics are continually changing, so we have 
to educate ourselves," Shannon Yust, SHAPE, member 
and senior in psychology, said. "One out of every 250 
college students are HIV positive." 

The group put on programs for fraternities, sororities, 
University Experience classes and other organizations 

"We gear it towards specific needs," Yust said. "The 
black heterosexual women from rural communities are 
at the top of the list for being HIV positive." 

Jawwad Abdulhaqq, BSU president and sophomore 
in political science, said his organization benefited from 
the SHAPE presentation. 

"Being African Americans, HIV and AIDS affects 
us," Abdulhaqq said. "Everyone learned something and 
hopefully took something from it." 

The games and activities added to SHAPE's presen- 
tations, promoting positive attitudes and reducing tears 
related to sexual health. 

"You are never too old to be reminded, and you can 
always learn something new," Tate said. "You never 
know what type of diseases will be out there in two years 
with everyone fornicating."

messages on the Valentine's Day 
candy grams. The group had diffi- 
culties finding a place to sell the 
candy grams. Because Smurthwaite 
was selling a similar product, Chimes 
members could not sell candy grams 
in the residence halls. Instead, they 
went to the greek houses and took 
phone orders. The new project only 
resulted in the sale of about 1 5 
candy grams, which forced the group 
to plan more profitable fund raisers 
for the future. (Photo by Scott

contained messages and Valentine's

himes junior honorary got into the Valentine's Day 
spirit by having a candy-gram sale. 

The candy grams, which contained sweets accompa- 
nied by a message, could be delivered anywhere in 
Manhattan on Valentine's Day. 

"There is a total of seven heart-shaped candies in a 
variety ot flavors in the package," Justin Kastner, junior 
in food science, said. "They write down a cheesy 
message for their sweetheart and we will send it to them 
on Feb. 14." 

Candy grams cost $5 and $3 from each sale went 
towards Chimes scholarships and new member selec- 
tion, which involved a lot ot paperwork. 

Hoping to market the fund raiser to a large number 
of students, members came up with a strategy. 

The week before Valentine's Day, members visited 
greek houses, promoting their candy grams. 

They planned to sell the candy grams Feb. 7, 8 and 9 
in Kramer, Van Zile and Derby dining centers, Manah 
Tanner, Chimes vice president and junior in human 
ecology, said. Unfortunately, not everything went as 

Because of conflicts with other fund raisers. Chimes 
was not allowed to sell its candy grams in the residence 

"We could not sell in the residence halls because 
Smurthwaite was selling something similar at the same 
time, so we could only sell to the greek houses," Tanner 

The group only sold about 15 candy grams. Tanner 

"We are going to have to look at another fund raiser," 
she said. "Things look a little bleak right now." 

Toby Rush, Chimes president and junior in me- 
chanical engineering, said the group had not sold candy 
grams before. 

"This is a pioneering idea," he said. "We wanted to 
do something that would be fun for the whole group." 

Before deciding to do the candy grams, members had 
considered selling singing telegrams. 

"That'd be a lot of singing, and we aren't that good," 
Tanner said.

tudent Alumni Board members spoke about student 
life, class loads and living arrangements during College 

The 24 members of the Alumni Board visited seven 
different Kansas high schools during the year, helping 
juniors and seniors learn what to expect once they 
reached college. 

"Our goal isn't to focus on one aspect," Amanda 
Evins, board president and senior in nutrition science, 
said. "We do, however, promote group living. For 
example, we speak about different living conditions — 
greek or residence halls." 

College Nights began by alumni board members 
showing the potential students different classes they 
could take and activities they could become involved 

Later in the evening, the students and their parents 
divided into two groups. Parents listened and asked 
questions about financial aid opportunities, while the 
students were given information about the various 
colleges on campus. 

"At the beginning, we're all in a group together with 

parents and students," Melissa Hurtig, sophomore in 
mechanical engineering, said. "We break up into life 
groups to talk about college life and into groups to talk 
about careers and classes. There are also alumni there to 
tell them about life after college." 

Becky Klingler, director of constituent programs 
for the KSU Alumni Association, said College Nights 
were educational for potential students and their par- 

"The college nights are very helpful to all students 
planning to attend K-State or not," she said. "The 
parents get the opportunity to ask financial aid officers 
questions and the students get a chance to visit with 
alumni and real live K-State students. They get a chance 
to have their questions answered." 

Recruitment was not the main goal of the program. 
By presenting experiences of students at K-State, future 
students got a taste of what college at any university 
would be like. 

"We approach it from a standpoint of presenting 
K-State in a friendly and comfortable way," Evins

iscussions ranging from penis enlargements to cam- 
pus issues compelled students to turn oft their televisions 
and tune into "A Purple Affair," the call-in radio talk 
show on KSDB-FM 91.9. 

Richard Allen, promotion director tor "A Purple 
Affair" and sophomore in theater, said he tried to attract 
special guests tor the show around the holidays. 

"We get our guests locally, as well as from all over," 
he said. "If there's a minor holiday coming up, we 
usually go for a national guest, but if it's a major holiday, 
we try to stay local." 

The show had changed during the three years it had 
been on the air, Allen said. 

"It didn't start out being four days a week," he said. 
"Now it runs Monday through Thursday, and the topics 
we have are more interesting. We have live remotes and 

The live-remote segment ol the show was a new 
addition. Heidi Evert, member of the live-remote crew 
and senior in mass communications, said sometimes it 
was difficult to find places to do the live remotes. 

"We're kind of limited because the show's from 10 
to 1 1 p.m. and it's hard to find places that are open or 
willing to open," she said. "We went to Rad-A-Tat 
Tattoo once. They're not normally open that late, but 
they stayed open and Maggie (Otvos) got a tattoo over 
the air." 

Evert said she and Otvos, senior in theater, rode the 
bull at Silverado Saloon and sang karaoke at The Flash- 
back Lounge over the air. She said the live-remote 
portion of the show was well received. 

"For a week during (fall semester) finals, we didn't 
do the live remote," Evert said. "A guy called in and 
wanted to make sure that we were going to do the live 
remote again the next semester. He said that we were the 
only reason he listened to the show." 

Jason Dechant, show co-host and junior in political 
science, said "A Purple Affair" had improved through- 
out the year. 

"It's developed a lot since the beginning of the 
school year," he said. "People have started to work 
better together. We've gotten more consistent." 

Dechant said he hoped the show would receive a 
different time slot in the future. 

"Next year, I want to get a new time for the show, 
5 to 6 p.m., and take it to five days a week," he said. "The 
10 toll p.m. time slot doesn't offer us the opportunity

guest they were not able to keep on

nection. The show aired five nights a 
week from 10 to II p.m. Although 
the show hoped to change its time 
slot because of small audiences, it 
still managed to draw notable guests 
such as Fred Phelps, Topeka resident. 
The hosts wanted to move the show's 
time slot to 5 to 6 p.m. because 
more businesses were open for their 
live remote and more people would 
be able to listen. (Photo by Darren

that the 5 to 6 p.m. time slot would." 

Regardless of "A Purple Affair's" time slot, Allen 
said the station's number of listeners had steadily in- 

"We are getting more listeners than we've ever 
had," he said. "We've always had a steady listenership, 
but it's really been increasing lately." 

Dechant said he and the show's other host, Aaron 
Decker, senior in radio/television, wrote their own 
questions and researched and discussed possible topics 
for the show. 

"Aaron Decker and I have developed a chemistry 
throughout the year," Dechant said. "We have a strong 
ability to work off and feed off each other in terms ot 
creativity and the questions we ask." 

Looking to continue improving the student-run 
show, Allen said he had taken promotion by the horns. 

"As long as I'm around, I hope to keep making it 10 
times better," he said. "We get a lot of positive reactions 
to the show. We have a steady listenership and good 
hosts who deserve a lot of praise."

house of cans provided shelter for needy Manhattan- 
area families during the holidays. 

The Flint Hills Breadbasket and the National Society 
for Architectural Engineers joined with Cats for Cans to 
collect donations and canned goods during the fall. 

"We collect food and donations for the Flint Hills 
Breadbasket," Jason Kerns, senior in architectural 
engineering, said. "Our organization, National Society 
of Architectural Engineering collected 119 pounds of 
food and about $20." 

The collections went to help needy families during 
Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

Architecture students created a mock house made of 
19,000 cans. The house was built Nov. 1 1 and remained 
on display until Nov. 17 at Manhattan Town Center, 

where donations could be made by area residents. 

"It took us about six hours from start to finish," Paul 
Meyer, senior in architectural engineering, said. "We also 
had barrels around campus to collect canned goods in." 

Students dedicated time collecting food and putting 
together the house displayed in Manhattan Town Center. 

"The project was mainly done by our group trom the 
architectural engineering department," Shawn Slyter, 
freshman in architectural engineering, said. 

Slyter said he was glad to help increase awareness of 
homelessness in the area. 

"We take all of our collections to the Breadbasket and 
then they disperse them as they see fit," Kerns said. "The 
Breadbasket will then make baskets and give them to the 
people in need."

SINCE 1957 




It started with five teams, but grew to be one of the most 
competitive leagues in the nation. 

The Big 8 had been home to 1 1 4 national champions, 20 Orange 

Bowl winners and five Rhodes Scholar football student athletes. 

Teams and fans felt the thrill of victory and the hollo wness of 
defeat. Through the years, some conference teams rose to the 

top, others fell to the bottom and some did a little of both. 

Traditions were started and while some of these would end with 

the arrival of the Big 12 Conference, others would continue for 

years to come. 

♦ ♦ ♦ 

The following special section takes a look back at the 50 years 

leading to the formation of the Big 8 Conference and its 39 years 
of heartbreak and celebration. The people, places and events that 
shaped the years would forever be remembered by the athletes, 

fans and coaches who lived through the era. 
232 -Big 8 Conference- 



January 12 — a momentous 

day in the history of college 

sports. That day, at the 

Midland Hotel in Kansas City, 

Mo., representatives from the 

University of Kansas, the 

University of Missouri, the 

University of Nebraska, the 

University of Iowa and 
Washington University of St. 

Louis formed the Missouri 

Valley Intercollegiate Athletic 

Conference, which preceeded 

the Big 8 Conference. League 

membership expanded to 

seven with the additon of 

Ames College (now Iowa 

State University) and Drake 

University (Iowa) a mere two 

months later, though they 

would not participate until the 

1908 season. Iowa, which had 

held dual membership in the 

Big 10, left the MVIAA in 

Kansas College of Applied 
Science and Agriculture, now 
Kansas State University, joined 
the league in 1913. Although 
the Wildcats had competed in 
football since the 1890s {1908 
team above) and men's basket- 
ball since 1902, it lacked any 

conference affiliation until 
joining the Missouri Valley. 

The addition of Grinnell 
College (Iowa) in 1919, the 
University of Oklahoma in 
1920 and Oklahoma A&M 
College (now Oklahoma State 
University) in 1925 brought 
league membership to an all- 
time high of 10 schools. 
Ironically, Oklahoma A&M 
left the Southwest Confer- 
ence, dominated by Texas 
schools, to join the Missouri 


1 he transformation from the 

Missouri Valley to the Big 8 

began on May 19, 1928, when 

representatives from six of the 

seven public schools (Okla- 
homa State was omitted) chose 
to create their own conference. 

Kansas, K-State, Nebraska, 
Missouri, Oklahoma and Iowa 

State recreated the Missouri 

Valley Intercollegiate Athletic 

Association and were most 
often refered to by the public 
and the media by their 
unofficial name, the Big 6. 
Once again, Oklahoma State 
provided a piece of irony for 
the conference history books 

— the only public school 
snubbed by the Big 6, OSU 
had just won the first of 1 14 

NCAA national team 
championships conference 
teams would win through 
1995. Oklahoms State's 1928 
wrestling title was the first of 
four straight championships. 
The Cowboys would win 20 

national championships in 
wrestling, men's basketball and 
cross country before rejoining 

the conference in 1957. 

One facet of modern college 

athletics unseen in the early 

days was women's sports. 

Wlule many schools had 

female athletes competing in 

various sports (K-State women 's 

basketball 1910 above left) they 

were not recognized as varsity 

sports until much later.

he Big 8 Conference had been around in one form football, cross country, men's basketball, gymnastics, indoor 
or another for 89 years. It had won more NCAA and outdoor track, wrestling, baseball, golf and snow skiing. 

championships than all but two other conferences in 
the nation, including the first-ever sweep of football and 
women's volleyball national championships in 1995. 

But this year marked the end of the confrence's era and 
member schools planned to join the University of Texas, 
Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Baylor to form the Big 12 

"While many see this as a step forward, it's still a very sad 
day," Nebraska football coach Tom Osborne said. "This 
conference has gone for almost 40 years without a change, 
and not a lot of conferences could say that." 

His Cornhuskers helped usher the conference out in 
style, winning back-to-back national football champion- 
ships in 1995 and 1996. 

Long known as a football conference because of the 
domination of Nebraska and Oklahoma, Big 8 institutions 
combined for more than 100 NCAA championship titles in 

Two Big 8 schools, K-State and Kansas, were among the 
pioneers of women's basketball, elevating the sport to varsity 
status in 1968, four years before Title IX would require 
universities nationwide to add women's sports. In 1979, the 
Big 8 became the first major sports governing body to 
officially recognize women's sports — the NCAA followed 
suit three years later. 

"This is a great conference," said Missouri women's 
basketball coach Joann Rutherford, one of two Big 8 women's 
coaches with more than 400 wins. "The Big 8 has consis- 
tently played some of the best basketball in the country." 

As the Big 8 came to a close, former K-State men's 
basketball coach Jack Hartman reflected on the conference 
and its passing. 

"It's been great," he said. "These were some of the best 
teams and some of the best people I ever knew, but it's time 
to look forward."

without its share of successes in 
the 1930s. Iowa State shared 
the NCAA wrestling champi-

1933, the first title for the 

league. Oklahoma followed suit 

with back-to-back wrestling 

titles in 1936 and 1937. 


hile no conference school 
won an NCAA championship 
in this decade, the Big 6 made 
its first move toward expansion 

since the days of the old 
Missouri Valley Conference. 
Colorado joined the league, 
now the Big 7 Conference. 


:t wasn't until the 1950s that 

the Big 7 really came into its 

own as a conference — and it 

was the University of 

Oklahoma that brought the 

conference to the big leagues. 

The Sooners won their first 

national football crown in 1950, 

and plenty more would come. 

K-State basketball 

ushered in the new era in 

1950 with the completion of 
Ahearn Field House (above

innaugurated the building 
with a 66-56 win over Utah 
State in the fourth game of 
the 1950-51 season. Legend-

Jt he Big 6 Conference must 

have regretted leaving 

Oklahoma State out during its 

early years. The Cowboys 
collected 20 national champi- 
onship in cross country, 
basketball and wrestling before 
rejoining the league in 1957. 
This gave the Big 8 league

next 39 years. The Cowboys

Oklahoma and Iowa State each 

claimed at least two titles

three claimed the crown. 
Not that wrestling was the only 

sport in which Big 8 institu- 
tions excelled. Oklahoma State

starting one of the most 
powerful and longest-lasting 
dynasties in college sports.

Change was in the air as the 

decade drew to a close. In 

1968, K-State and Kansas 

became the first Big 8 schools 

to elevate women's basketball 

to varsity status, while the rest 

of the conference followed 

suit several years later.

interested in the construction 

of a new football stadium

replaced Memorial Stadium as 

the home of Wildcat football. 


-Big 8 Conference- 235 






SINCE 1957 





Ending its 87th season, Big 8 Conference football 
went out m a blaze of glory. 
Four teams — Nebraska, Colorado, K-State and 
Kansas — finished in the top 10 of the Associated Press poll, 
an unprecedented achievement. In tact, no other conference 
had ever had four teams with at least 10 victories. 

"I just think this goes to show the Big 8 is the premier 
conference in America, and the Big 12 is going to be even 
better," President Jon Wefald said. 

All tour teams finished with impressive bowl victories. 

Nebraska steamrolled through the regular season and a 
62-24 win over Florida in the Fiesta Bowl. 

"I was really surprised how it went," Coach Tom 
Osborne said. "I expected it to be a close game and go down 
to the wire. We just got momentum, got a few breaks and 
things just kind of snowballed." 

The Cornhuskers ( 1 2-0) were undefeated for the second 
straight season and finished 7-0 m the Big Eight for the third 
season in a row. 

While Osborne had been in Lincoln for 23 seasons, 
Colorado coach Rick Neuheisel began his first year as the 
Buffaloes' coach. 

The Buffs (10-2) finished the regular season with a late 
touchdown pass from John Hessler to James Kidd to beat K- 
State and win a berth to the Cotton Bowl, where they 
stomped Oregon 38-6, finishing with a No. 8-ranking in the 
AP poll. 

The surprise of the conference was Kansas. Picked by 
many to finish fifth, the Jayhawks (10-2) proved they were 
for real with an upset victory Oct. 6 at Colorado and a 51- 
30 stomping of UCLA in the Aloha Bowl. 

The Hawks finished the season with a No. 10 ranking in 
the AP poll. 

K-State had its first 10-win season since 1910 and a win 
over Colorado State in the Holiday Bowl. 

"This is the way it is supposed to be," senior linebacker 
Percell Gaskins said. "When you look at who's coming back, 
I expect these guys to do even more next year than we did."

were firmly established among

officially sanction the sports.

a leader in the world of 
college athletics on May 24, 

1979, when the league 
became the first major sports 
governing body to officially 
recognize women's athletics, 

holding official conference 
championships for the first 
time in 1980. The NCAA 

would not recognize women's 

sports until 1982, but that did 

not prevent Big 8 schools 

from competing in national 

basketball championships 
hosted by the Association of 
Intercollegiate Athletics for 

Women. K-State, the premier 
Big 8 program in the '70s, 

placed fifth in 1973 and sixth 

in '75, playing host to the 

national tournament in '74. 

The Big 8 continued to thrive 
in other areas as well.

-Big 8 Conference- 237 












Fans mourned the passing of the Big 8 Conference 
knowing tomorrow they would celebrate the birth of 
the Big 12 Conference. But toward the end of the 
1980s, it appeared K-State would not play a part in either. 

Trends like declining enrollment, the conference's 
lowest; losing football teams, at the time the nation's longest 
losing streak; and inadequate facilities, the worst in the Big 
8, had the Wildcats eyeing the Missouri Valley Conference. 

"I think that's where we were headed. Once you lose 
the Big 8 and the television exposure and the Orange Bowl, 
you might have a situation like Wichita State, where you 
can't afford football," President Jon Wefald said. 

When Notre Dame left the College Football Associa- 
tion to negotiate its own television deal, the era of the mass- 
media athletic conference had begun. Colorado was being 
courted by the Pac-10, and the Big 10 Conference sought 
Missouri. Big 8 Conference schools were forced to look at 
their own institutions and ask what the future held. 

"If the trends that had been established between 1981 

and 1986 had continued through 1990," Wefald said, 
"Kansas State would not be a member of the Big 8 today." 

Such a change would have been detrimental to recruit- 
ment not only of athletes, but also of students in general. 

"My family has a tradition of K-State sports," Erik 
Pollom, sophomore in sociology, said. "My uncle played 
football here and so did my grandfather. If K-State wasn't 
playing Big 8-level competition, I wouldn't have felt that 
tradition to come here." 

Since then, the University made a complete turnaround, 
academically and athletically. Enrollment rose to record 
levels in the 1990s, K-State led all public universities in 
Rhodes, Marshall, Truman and Goldwater Scholarships 
since 1986 and Cat football achieved unprecedented success. 

"The first thing we had to do was hire a crackerjack 
administrative team. Second, we had to take care of declin- 
ing enrollment," Wefald said. "For football, it meant hiring 
Bill Snyder and getting alumni to donate more than $10 
million to rebuild our football infrastructure."

in the beginning, it looked like 

it would be a basketball decade 

for the Big 8. K-State's 17-9 

regular season was capped off 

by a Big 8 Tournament 

championship and a trip to the 

NCAA tournament. The 

Wildcats fell to eventual 

national-champion Louisville in 

the tournament's second round, 

but it would take the Cardinals 

overtime to earn the win. 


I he 1981 NCAA tourna- 
ment propelled K-State and 
the Big 8 into the national 
spotlight. Guard Rolando 
Blackmail's clutch jumper in 
the final seconds gave the Cats 

a 50-48 upset victory over 

No. 2 Oregon State. The Cats 

reached the Elite Eight before 

falling to North Carolina. The 

conference was equally 

impressive in women's 

basketball during the early 80s.

Eight of the NCAA's first

Big 8 team in the 80s. The Big

gave them the conference's 

only football championship of 

the 80s. That luck did not rub 

off on the Cats. Unable to

season, K-State football

had split their regular-season 

meetings, with the Cats

Big 8 Tournament semifinal.

Jayhawks got the better of this 

meeting, using a 71-58 

victory to claim their second 

Final Four birth in the last 

three years. K-State's

SINCE 1957 





Among the Midwestern cities without Big 8 Confer- 
ence institutions, perhaps none would miss the 
conference as much as Salma. 

For 10 years, the Bicentennial Center in Salina played 
host to the Big 8 Women's Basketball Tournament. The 
advent of the Big 12 and the new conference's desire to plan 
the event at the same time and in the same city as the men's 
tournament would force the event to return to Kansas City. 

For Salina residents, the tournament meant more than 
three days of exciting basketball — it was a source of pride 
and recognition. 

"I think it helped put us on the map in relation to a variety 
of major basketball events," Gerald Cook, president of the 
Salina Chamber of Commerce, said. "We've had a host of 
inquiries from other organizations and associations who have 
at some point been here for the Big 8 Tournament." 

Participants said they saw that pride reflected in the 
attitude ol the Salina residents. 

"Fm not sure there's any group of people outside 

Lawrence who gave us a wanner welcome every year," 
Kansas coach Marian Washington, whose Jayhawks won 
three tournament crowns in Salina, said. "We enjoy coming 
here every year, and we just hope we can provide a good 
show for the fans. They earned it." 

Wildcat sophomore point guard Amanda Chamberlain 
said the Cats appreciated the reception they received in Salina 
year after year. 

"The local alumni always host a banquet for us, but it's 
more than that," she said. "There's always a good K-State 
crowd here, but they love the game no matter who's playing." 

While Chamberlain and the rest of the Big 8 would have 
to deal with a relocated tournament in coming years, Salina 
residents were satisfied they had made their mark on the 
tournament — and the sport. 

"When we got the tournament, we took a game that was 
playing second string to men's basketball in Kansas City and 
built it into a major sport and a major attraction," Cook said. 
"That's what Salina is most proud of."

I he Big 8 continued to show 

its strength in a variety of 

sports. Oklahoma State 

reasserted its superiority in the 

wrestling world by repeating as 

NCAA wrestling champs in 

1990, the 28th wrestling title 

either won or shared by the 

Cowboys. And Nebraska 
claimed another gymnastics 
i rown. 
But it was the 1990 Colorado 
football team, lead by quarter- 
back Damn Hagan and running 

back Eric Bienniemy that 

captured the hearts of America. 

The Buffaloes' 10-9 Orange 

Bowl win over Notre Dame 

secured CU's first national 

football championship and 

avenged the previous year's loss. 


The Kansas men's basketball 

team endured a year of 

probation after its 1988 

national championship season. 

But second-year coach Roy 

Williams hardly noticed, 

leading his team to a No. 1 

seed in the Midwest Regional 

bracket of the NCAA 

Tournament. The trip ended 

sooner than expected tor the 

Jayhawks, who ended the 

regular season 30-4. UCLA 

upset the Hawks 71-70 in the 

second round of the 



klahoma State and 
Colorado recaptured their 
places atop the golf and skiing 

worlds in 1991. Colorado, 

which had won eight 

consecutive titles in the 1970s 

as well as the 1982 crown, 

ended a nine-year absence 

from the top spot with the 

1991 title. Oklahoma State's 

golf championship was the 

seventh in school history and 

the first of two the Cowboys 

would win in the '90s. 

The glory Kansas missed in 

1990 came in 1991. The 

Jayhawks became the first Big 

8 team to reach the Final Four 

in the '90s, playing Duke in 

the championship game. But 

the Blue Devils would not be 

denied, avenging their 

semifinal loss in '88 with a 72- 

65 victory for their first 

NCAA title. 

ansas basketball was again 
the story in 1992, one of two 
years in the '90s in which the 
Big 8 failed to win a national 
championship. The Jayhawks 
seemed to be the conference's 
best bet, entering the NCAA 
Tournament with a No. 2 
ranking and the top seed in 

the Midwest Region. 
Furthermore, the road to the 
Final Four ran through Kansas 
City, Mo., where the regional 

semifinals and final were 

played. But the Hawks never 

got out of Dayton, Ohio, 

where they fell to the 

University of Texas-El Paso 

66-60 in the second round.

ice again the Big 8 would 
find itself without a national 

title. And once again the 
Kansas Jayhawks would find 
themselves in the Final Four. 
Led by senior guards Adonis 
Jordan and Rex Walters, the 
Hawks cruised through the 
Midwest Regional on the way 
to a semifinal match-up with 

North Carolina. But the 

Eventual national champions 

from Chapel Hill downed 

Kansas 78-68. 

1993 also saw the emergence 

of Colorado as a powerhouse 

in women's basketball. The 

Buffaloes won their first of 

three-straight regular season 

conference championships en 

route to a No. 9 final ranking. 

1 he Big 8 found itself atop 

the national rankings in a 

number of sports in 1994 — a 

welcome change after being 

shut out for the last two years. 

Oklahoma State's wrestling 

title, Iowa State's cross 
country title, Oklahoma's 
baseball title and Nebraska's 
gymnastics title added to the 
already-decorated programs. 
But the defining moment for 

the Big 8 came with Tom 
Osborne's Nebraska football 
team downing Miami in the 
Orange Bowl. The win gave 
Osborne his first national 
championship in a 22-year 
coaching career that saw the 
Huskers in a bowl every year. 



i Vebraska repeated as national 

football champions in 1995, 
while the Colorado skiing and 
Oklahoma State golf dynasties 
saw their teams once again at 

the top. 

But the Colorado women's 

basketball team was the story 

of 1995. Behind all-Anierican 

point guard Shelly Sheetz, the 

Buffaloes sailed undefeated 

through the Big 8 regular 

season and tournament. With 

a No. 1 seed and the dream of 
getting Coach Ceal Barry to 

the Final Four before her 40th 

birthday, the Buffs headed to 

the NCAA tournament only 

to be bounced by Georgia in 

the regional finals.

242 -Clark- 

n the spotlight 


In 1994, Clark laid his program on the betting table. 
After a year of struggling, he and the Wildcats are starting to collect. 

Clark, in 
his ninth 
year as 
guided the 
Wildcats to 
a third- 
place finish 
in the Big 8

Three years ago, baseball coach 
Mike Clark faced a monumen- 
tal decision — a decision that 
could have affected the fate of 
his baseball team for years to come. 

"At that time, our team was OK, 
but it didn't have the talent that was 
needed to compete in the Big 8 Confer- 
ence," Clark said. "So we had to make a 
big decision — do we go for the quick 
fix and bring in a bunch of transfer 
students, or do we go with some 
younger kids?" 

Clark gambled on the second op- 
tion, taking a chance with a talented but 
young squad. 

"We knew in the fall that the talent 
was there," he said. "The potential was 
good. We said to those kids, 'All right, 
we're going to have a real struggle for a 
year or so, but when you get older, we 
have a chance of being something spe- 

A psychic couldn't have been more 
accurate. Clark and his team struggled 
through the 1994 season, finishing with 
a 13-43 record, winningjust three Big 8 

"The hardest thing we had to do 
that year was to stay positive," he said. "I 
mean, there were some games when I'd 
leave the ballpark and I'd be sick to my 
stomach. I'd go out on the back patio of 
my house andjust sit there and watchjets 
fly over until three in the morning, 
thinking, 'This is really tough.'" 

Clark wasn't just watching as those 
jets flew by. He was also thinking about 
two other job offers. 

"I know there are maybe betterjobs 
out there, but those are for other 
people," he said. "I knew the bestjob in 
the world for me was at Kansas State." 

So Clark stuck it out through the 
hard times, as did his players. 

"It was very frustrating. But Coach 

by n i co 

Clark never lost faith m us," sophomore 
second baseman Scott Peopard said. "He 
was always very confident and encour- 
aging, and people respected him." 

Clark said even through the hard 
times he had faith in the team. 

"Every once in awhile, they'd show 
you a little glimpse of their talent," he 
said. "Or they'd show it for seven in- 
nings, and then, wham, we'd get hit with 
a six-run eighth inning. 

"If you remember, one of our big 
wins was against Oklahoma that year," 
Clark said. "We're in the middle of a 13- 
or 14-game losing streak, and here we 
knock off a team that wins the College 
World Series. We knew it was just a 
matter of time before their talent became 
a reality." 

That time came when the Cats fin- 
ished the 1995 season with a 29-24 
record, placing third in the Big 8 Tour- 
nament, the best performance in school 

"Last season helped our program 
tremendously," he said. "It gave cred- 
ibility to what we'd been doing. If we'd 
have gone through another 13-43 year, 
we wouldn't have credibility with these 
kids. There would be doubts about 
them, and I'm sure I would have 
doubted what they could do." 

Clark no longer had many doubts 
about his team. 

"I think maybe we've got the team 
right now that can win the Big 8 Con- 
ference and be the first conference 
champions for K-State since 1933," he 

"So now when I'm driving back 
from a recruiting visit at 2:30 in the 
morning, if I get a little depressed, all I do 
is think, 'Hey, my whole goal is to 'walk 
off the field one of these days with a 
conference championship,'" Clark said. 
"That just gets me going again."

"Breakthrough. Last season was really a 
breakthrough year for the kids and hopefully for the 
program's future," he said. 

Clark and the Wildcats endured a 13-43 season in 
1994, and then witnessed that same team mature into 
a formidable conference force in 1 995 — a force strong 
enough to finish third in the Big 8 Tournament and 
improve its record by 16 games to 29-24 overall. 

But Clark said it did not surprise him. It was just 
a matter of time. 

"It was a situation where I think potential turned 
into reality," he said. "We all knew those guys could do 
those things on the playing field, and they all went out 
and did them, and they all had great years." 

Among the Cats who received recognition for 
their outstanding seasons were junior right fielder Chris 
Hess, junior pitcher Matt Koeman and sophomore 
second baseman Scott Poepard. All three players were 
selected to the all-Big 8 first team, something that had 
not happened since 1968. 

Hess led the team in hitting at .387 and finished as 
the Big 8's fourth-best hitter. He also became a third- 
time first-team member of the Phillips 66 Academic 
all-Big 8 honor roll. 

Koeman was 6-2 on the year overall and 3-1 in 
league play. Some highlights of his season included a 
two-hit win against Oklahoma, the defending College 
World Series Champion, as well as a three-hit complete 
game victory over Oklahoma State. That performance 
was enough to earn Koeman all-Big 8 Tournament

Poepard was an offensive power, leading the team 
with 10 home runs, 23 doubles and 55 PvBI's on the 
year. After going 6-for-16 at the Big 8 Tournament, 
Poepard also earned all-Big 8 Tournament honors. 

Three players made the league's second team —

Chris Bouchard andjunior pitcher Jon Albrecht. Making

struggled for two years

it needed. But those two

things could get any worse, 
but they did," he said. 

"Everything bad that could have happened that year 
(1994) happened to us." 

Even though the Cats were futile tor two seasons, 
Hendrix said he knew the team would turn it around. 

"We knew what we could do last year, so we just 
went out and did it," he said. "And doubts we had 
going into last year are gone, so that's helped."

performances throughout the year, Clark said the team 

as a whole never ceased to amaze him. 

"It was just a very rewarding season," Clark said. 
"Some of the games we played were so crazy and 
exciting, you'd just sit back and enjoy it. It was one of 
those deals that even when the game was over, the kids 
still believed they could come back and give us one 
more inning. 

"I mean, we beat Oklahoma twice, a team that 
went to the College World Series, and for the first time 
in 17 years, we put a loss to Oklahoma State in the first 
round of the conference tournament," Clark said. 
"There weren't really many disappointments. 
Everybody, especially during the last half of the season, 
really put their game together and just got better and 

Betore losing to Iowa State, the squad was just a 
base hit away from competing for the Big 8 Tournament 
championship. After the last game had been played, the 
team found themselves tied with Nebraska lor lourth- 
place in the conference standings with a 13-14 record, 
which was quite an improvement from 1994's 3-27 
league mark. 

"I thought our kids really came a long way, and our 
program is really focused in the right direction," Clark 
said. "At the end of the season, we were a regional 
ballclub, and we're hoping to carry that on. It was fun. 
The kids really had fun." 

Second baseman Scott Poepard agreed. 

"Last year, everything finally came together for 
us," Poepard said. "We definitely think we could have 
the best team K-State has ever had. I can't see us doing 
anything but winning from now on."

fund raisers offset lack of scholarships morning practices pay off 


WOMEN'S CREW was familiar with rising. 
Not only did they rise to varsity status, but also early 
every morning for a two-hour practice. 

"I get up at 5:30 a.m. and have my clothes on when 
I go to bed," Jmny Wilson, junior in pre-medicine, 

The crew's hard work and dedication drew the 
attention of the administration when the University 
began looking for a women's team to make varsity. 

"We heard the official announcement from Max 
Urick on July 10," Alan Koch, women's crew coach, 
said. "It began appearing in the papers on the weekend 
of the 12th." 

The change, scheduled to take place in September 
1996, reflected the 1972 
Title IX act requiring 
universities to provide 
equal opportunities to 
women athletes. If more 
women's varsity sports 
were not made available, 
federal funding would be 
taken away from K-State. 
Exposure from the 
elevated status would help 
the crew recruit rowers 
with experience and also 
teach others the sport. 

"Rowing is a sport 

unlike football, track and 

basketball," Koch said. 

"Very few have competed 

in high school. So, there 

has to be a training ground 


Once crew became a varsity sport, scholarships 

would be offered to team members, allowing the 

women to focus completely on rowing. 

"The change would help the varsity women's 
team a lot," Koch said. "Now coming up with dues 
often means a part-time job." 

Until then, finding money to pay for rowing 
expenses was a problem for some crew members. 

"I don't have a job. My parents pay for everything 
I need, but we do have fund raisers for people who 
don't have the money," Wilson said. "They really do 

After completing a two-hour practice, 
members of the women's crew team carry 
their boat up to the boat house for storage.

try to help out if money is a problem." 

The team had several fund raisers, including the 
Rent-a-Rower and the Ergathon. 

The crew looked to the community to raise funds 
with the Rent-a-Rower fund raiser. 

"We put an ad in the local paper and it people had 
odd jobs they could get rowers to come out and help," 
Wilson said. 

Physical endurance helped the team raise money 
with the Ergathon. Team members collected pledges 
for every mile they rowed on the Erg rowing machine. 

The money helped offset expenses for the year. 
Entry fees to the regattas, travel costs, $80 dues and 
other expenses were the responsibility of the members. 

Expenses added up as the crew competed year 
around in tour different seasons, Koch said. 

The fall season featured long endurance races 
against the clock on rivers and lakes. In the winter, the 
crew competed in 2,000- and 2,500-meter Erg 
challenges. The spring competitions were side-by-side 
lane races and the summer races were singles or pairs in 
smaller boats. 

"The spring is my favorite, right after the winter 
competitions because we are in better shape and it is a 
more competitive season," Kim Desch, sophomore in 
pre-nursing, said. 

Crew members trained specifically tor their 
competition level. 

"Different ones specialize in certain events," Koch 
said. "Some members are more recreational than others. 
They are in it more for the fun of rowing." 

Nine varsity women traveled with the men's crew 
team to regional competitions, and the two teams 
worked together during practices and on the road. 

"Varsity men's and women's teams practice together 
at six in the morning. We're out there from six to eight. 
If there is not enough women in a boat we will row with 
the men," Wilson said. "We work closely together. If the 
women need something the men are there and vice- 

Koch said the crew had potential and with the 
coming varsity status, the community should provide 
the support necessary for the team to succeed. 

"As rowing gets more publicity, more people get 
involved and hopefully more people will go out to the 
lake," he said.

inner tube water polo — not the average sport learning the rules 


GOING BEYOND the basics, athletes 
competed in the newest intramural sport at K-State, 
inner tube water polo. 

"We saw it in the 
intramural booklet and 
thought it sounded like 
fun, so we thought we'd 
give it a try," said Dan 
Bates, Major Infractions 
team member andjunior 
in animal sciences and 

"We've never done 
anything like it before 

— just played the regu- 
lar sports like football, 
basketball and softball 

— so we thought we'd 
go out ol the ordinary 
and try something new 
and different," he said. 

Inner tube water 
polo, a co-recreational 
intramural sport, was at- 
tractive because it 
looked like fun and was 
different than other 

Scoring the most 
goals within the 24 min- 
utes of play was the ob- 
ject of the game. Seven 
team members, 
equipped with inner 
tubes and numbered 
caps, maneuvered the 
ball from one end of the 
pool to the other, passing it from teammate to 
teammate. Goals were scored when a thrown ball 
crossed the front plane of a net goal located along

the outer edge of the pool. 

Maneuvering the ball was not difficult, but 
trying to remember the rules was hard. 

"One thing that is hard to remember is that 
guys can only throw to girls," Bates said. "When 
you have a guy that's open, it's hard to resist 
throwing it to them." 

Male-to-male passes were considered minor 
infractions resulting in the other team receiving an 
indirect throw. 

"Minor infractions occur when a player 
splashes someone who doesn't have the ball, holds 
the ball for more than 15 seconds, or makes a guy- 
to-guy pass," said Ron Dubbert, recreational ser- 
vices intramural supervisor and senior in 

"They result in the other team getting an 
indirect throw, where a member puts the ball in 
play and can't be touched and the pass can't be 
interfered with," he said. 

Major infractions resulted in direct throws, 
which means a throw can be taken by the player 
fouled with the opportunity of directly scoring a 
goal. Major infractions occurred when a person 
was caught holding, pushing, hitting, jumping on 
or dunking an opponent. 

"Most of the teams don't know the rules, so it's 
our job to teach them within the first couple of 
games," Dubbert said. "Hopefully by the end of 
the tournament, the teams know and understand 
the rules." 

Sixteen teams participated in the double-elimi- 
nation tournament, played Sunday and Wednesday 
nights at the Natatoriuni. 

"It's an awesome sport," said Paul Hoeller, 
Aiche team member and senior in chemical engi- 
neering. "The nice thing about this sport is that it 
doesn't matter if you're Michael Jordan or Bo 
Jackson, everybody is at the same level. It all 
depends on how crazy you are."

The teams competed in the final Big 8 Champion- 
ships Oct. 27 at Rim Rock Farm in Lawrence. 

Coach Terry Drake said he was impressed by the 
improvement of the 
men's team, which 
placed fourth after last 
year's seventh-place 

"I'm happy for the 
men," Drake said. "They 
stayed focused and deter- 
mined throughout the 
entire race. To finish 
fourth in one of the best 
cross-country confer- 
ences in the country isn't 
bad at all." 

Junior Ryan Clive- 

Smith led the team with a 

13th-place finish and a 

time of 24:47. Junior 

John Thorpe placed 20th with a time of 25:27, junior 

David Dominguez came in 22nd and sophomore Paul 

Birnbaum finished 32nd. 

Thorpe said the Big 8 meet was beneficial for the 

"We, as a team, really came together at the Big 8 
meet," Thorpe said. "It was a lot better showing than 
last year." 

We took a lot of positive 

steps to making a good team 

and everyone wanted to be 

a part of the team effort. 

Drake said he was pleased with Clive-Smith's 
strong performance in the meet. 

"Ryan Clive-Smith really stayed in there and 
competed," he said. "He fell back some and then did 
what it took to get caught back up. 

"There are very few runners that compare to 
him," Drake said. "What he doesn't have in physical 
gifts, he makes up for mentally." 

Clive-Smith attributed his success to a different 
training program. 

"It was different this year as far as training goes, " he 
said. "It was probably better this season. I didn't train 
as hard over the summer as I did last year. I waited until 
I got back here and started training with attention on 
being able to last the entire season and being able to be 
at my peak at the end of the season." 

Clive-Smith said he found teamwork to be a 
stronger asset than in previous seasons. 

"We took a lot of positive steps to making a good 
team and everyone wanted to be a part of the team 
effort," he said. "We just had a team spirit that made 
it easy for us to work together, which was evident 
when the training and the team came together for the 
Big 8 meet. We all were able to do better." 

That team overcame the nationally-ranked 
Jayhawks at Kansas' meet to open the season. 

"At that point in time, both their men and women 
were nationally ranked and to beat them on their 
home course was a big deal," Drake said. 

"Also, at the same time there was a high school 
meet going on, so from the recruiting standpoint it was

Thorpe, who placed first at KU, also became an 
asset to the team as the No. 2 runner. 

"He won the KU meet and for the rest of the year 
he was a solid No. 2 guy," Drake said. "I was hoping 
for a little more from him, but one of the areas that has 
been down in the past was having a solid No. 2 

While the Big 8 Championships were a high point 
for the men, their performance at District V Champi- 
onships did not equal that of the women's team. 

The women's team finished a disappointing fifth in 
the Big 8 meet but senior Irma Betancourt finished in 
eighth place with a time of 18:20. 

"Irma had one of the best races of her career," 
Drake said. "She did a great job of going out and 
staying with the leaders, which is what we need her to 

Betancourt, the team's front runner, agreed the 
Big 8 meet was one of her best races. 

"My best performance was in the Big 8," she said. 
"Even though my time wasn't too good and it wasn't 
a PR (personal record), I think I ran more aggressive 
than at the other races." 

Junior Samantha McNamara placed 23rd, fol- 
lowed by sophomore Charity Swartz, 24th, and fresh- 
man Cristy Swartz, 30th. 

In spite of the downfall during the Big 8 meet, the 
women improved to finish fourth m the District V 
Championships Nov. 11. 

Districts proved to be the best meet of the season 
for the women. 

"It was emotionally up and down," Drake said. 
"The girls really stepped up. I couldn't have asked for 
more from them." 

Betancourt was the only team member to qualify 
for the NCAA Cross Country Championships, plac- 
ing eighth at Districts and 1 12th at the NCAA Cham- 
pionships in Ames, Iowa, Nov. 12. 

Competing at nationals was difficult and disap- 
pointing for Betancourt. 

"I thought I was going to do real well," she said. 
"Maybe I was a little bit insecure when I was at the 
competition. Maybe I wasn't really in the race. 

"I focused too much on the pain because it was 
really cold. I didn't think too much about the 
race," Betancourt said. "I just wanted to get done 
with it." 

Drake said he was impressed with her progress. 

"Her progress over the past four years has been 
unbelievable," he said.

competing athletically and academically a team aspect of sports 


In England, the sports 

are individual, and 

now I suddenly have the 

support of the team and I 

have had to learn how to 

be a part of that team. 

We do everything together 

as a team here. 



IN ORDER to compete athletically and 
academically, international athletes discovered 
American colleges offered opportunities foreign to 
their native countries. 

"I thought it was a great opportunity to come to the 
states," said Karen Nicholson, tennis team member and 
sophomore in public health/nutrition, said. "Back home, 
I wasn't able to do both — get an education 
and compete — so my parents agreed that 
this was the best option. My friends think 
it is exciting for me to be studying and 
competing here." 

Nicholson and her roommate, tellow 
tennis team member Dinah Watson, were 
from England. 

"It is a bit of a reward to come here 
and be able to compete and learn at the 
same time," Watson, freshman in 
kinesiology, said. "My friends couldn't 
believe it. It was kind of like a dream to 
come to America, especially for four 
years to study and play." 

For Watson and Nicholson, 
Manhattan was their first taste of America. 
However, Esa Sallinen, Finnish pole 
vaulter and freshman in environmental 
design, had already been to the United 
States as a foreign exchange student in 

"I went home for a year and got a 

call from the coach wanting to know if I 

would join the track team," he said. "I 

had heard about the architecture 

department here and that it was really good. I 'was 

looking for a scholarship and K-State was the only one 

that offered me a full ride, so I came here." 

Another track team member, Ryan Clive-Smith, 
senior in marketing, said he came to the University 
partially because of the coaches. 

"The coach at the time made it sound so good 
here," Clive-Smith said. "He painted a pretty good 
picture of what was happening here and from the 
schools that I could choose from, I chose this." 

Clive-Smith, a South Africa native, ran both cross 
country and track. 

"It was fortunate that when I came here, it was as 

good as he had said," Clive-Smith said. "When you 
come from that far away, you look for ways to eliminate 
schools and you look at the opportunities that they can 
give you." 

International athletes adjusted to being far from 

"Everything is different here, "Watson said. "Here 
we have a weight room, set practice times and the 
clothes are provided for you. It is so different than 
playing on your own." 

Differences were not limited to culture and climate, 
Watson said. 

"The attitude toward the sport is different — 
you're respected here," she said. "You can enjoy the 
sport, something that you can't do as much in England 
because of how professional the competition is there." 

For many international athletes, the reason to come 
to the U.S. was simpler. In their home countries, 
athletics were set apart from academics, which made 
athletes decide which was more important, Sallinen said. 

"It's much easier here because it's all at once," he 
said. "You can't finance sports and school at the same 
time, so you have to work and that takes away from 
studying and practicing." 

American schools gave athletes more opportunities 
than their native countries, Clive-Smith said. 

"There are many more options here," he said. "I 
prefer it this way because I get the opportunity to go to 
school and compete for the school. Obviously, I get an 
education and a lot more recognition. This type ol stutl 
would never really happen at home." 

For the most part, differences in team structures 
and coaching methods worked in the athletes' favor. 

"Now I always have someone to practice with and 
workout with which makes it all the more fun," 
Sallinen said. "In Finland, it's just you and the coach. 
Track is a team sport here and you go against other 
schools, but in Finland you're always an individual." 

He said he liked the team aspect of American 

"I think teamwork is much better here," Sallinen 
said. "You're not only responsible for yourself. If you 
do badly in the meet there, it only affects you; but here 
it affects the team and that makes you work so much 
harder. You're part of a team, so you have to try to do 
your best all of the time."

If volleyball player Yolanda Young 
could have had her way coming out 
of high school, she would have 
played volleyball for the No. 1 -ranked 
Nebraska Cornhuskers. 

"I was big-red bred," Young said. 
"I was a Husker fan ever since I was a 
little kid. Everyone is crazy for Nebraska. 
Then there was the fact that I lived in 
Omaha. Everybody there wanted to go 
to Nebraska, and that included me." 

Young didn't end up at Nebraska as 
she had hoped, even though the Huskers 
initially recruited her. Instead, she took 
a scholarship to play for the Big 8 
Conference's worst volleyball program 
at the time — K-State. 

"It kind of happened over a period 
of time," Young said. "Actually, 
Nebraska kind of pushed me off." 

Nebraska's loss was the Wildcats' 
gain. Young stepped in immediately and 
became the Wildcats' top offensive 
weapon during her freshman year. She 
led the team with 979 attacks and 315 
kills, with double-digit kills in at least 14 

"It was a big adjustment," Young 
said. "It was a big shock. College 
volleyball is just another step or two 
better than club and high school. I figured 
I would redshirt, but I got the opportunity 
to play." 

Former volleyball coach Patti 
Hagemeyer said Young was the Big 8's 
most explosive offensive weapon even 
when she was a freshman. 

"She can really put it away," 
Hagemeyer said two years ago. "I can't 
wait to see how she is when she is a senior. 
Everybody will be talking about how 
great of an offensive player Yolanda is." 

Young topped her freshman season 
by earning second team all-Big 8 honors 
last year. Starting all 97 games, she led 

by Jeremy era btree 

the team with 920 attacks and 381 kills. 
The Wildcats had their first winning 
season in three years. 

When Jim Moore took over as 
coach before Young's sophomore year, 
the Wildcats were learning a completely 
new offense. 

"She was really our only offensive 
weapon last season, " he said. "Whenever 
we needed a big play, we turned to her. 
She came through remarkably 
throughout the season. Our offense is 
set up so that anybody can be an attacker, 
but last year Yolanda was it." 

Young said it was hard adjusting to 
the new offense, but over time she 
learned to use it to her advantage. At the 
beginning of her junior year, she was 
already seventh on the Wildcats' all- 
time kill charts. 

"I was having a hard time picking 
up the entire offense," she said. "I wasn't 
the only one though," Young said. "The 
offense has a lot to do with timing. It was 
hard for all of us to adjust and open up 
and release. 

"Now that we're in the second year 
with the offense and with Coach Moore, 
we're starting to really get things 

Even as Young filled the record 
books, she wondered about what could 
have been at Nebraska. But she said she 
had no regrets about choosing K-State.

That's what the volleyball team took this season, 
finishing with 21-12 record and advancing to 
postseason play for the first time since 1979. 

The Wildcats' postseason trip was to the National 
Invitational Volleyball Championships in Kansas City's 
Municipal Auditorium. K-State went 2-2 in pool play, 
with victories against Drake and Rice. 

K-State had a chance to advance to the semi-finals 
of the tournament, but it lost 3-2 to Rhode Island. 

"The results aren't what we wanted, but we learned 
a lot," said Jim Moore, volleyball coach. "We made a 
lot of progress this season, and we did a lot of good 

Yolanda Young, K-State's top offensive weapon, 
said the Cats will be even better next season after this 
year's postseason experience. 

"I see no reason why we can't make it the NCAA 
Tournament next season," Young said. 

"We'll be there. We've taken some big steps with 
Coach Moore, and we will only continue to go forward 
from here." 

Still, the loss in the postseason didn't put a negative 
spin on the Wildcats' season, as the Wildcats accom- 
plished a lot in Moore's second season as coach. 

The transformation from perennial cellar-dweller 
to conference contender was complete. Before Moore 
arrived, the Cats hadn't had a winning season in three 
years, but this season's 21-12 record marked K-State's 
second straight winning season. 

Post-season play wasn't the only honor established 
by the volleyball team. Earlier in the season, middle 

blocker Kate DeClerk was named the AVCA National 
Division I player of the week. 

DeClerk was rewarded for her performance in the 
KSU Invitational, where she registered 47 kills, 37 digs, 
23 total blocks and four service aces. 

"Really, it was a team honor," DeClerk said. "I 
couldn't have done it without Devon Ryning setting 
me up all the time. I still 
can't believe I was se- 

After capturing the 
KSU Invitational, the 
Cats continued to roll in 
the early part of the sea- 
son. In fact, at one point 
K-State had a 12-2 
record. The Cats peaked 
when they defeated na- 
tionally-ranked Colo- 
rado 3-1 Sept. 30 in 
Ahearn Fieldhouse. 

Later that week, the 
Cats were rewarded for 
their play by receiving 
votes for the top 25 poll for the first time in school 

"That was a really, really big win for us," Moore 
said. "It proved that we could play with anybody in the 
Big 8. The key for us was to continue to play like that 
every match. We didn't do that all season, but against 
Colorado we put it all together."

progress this season, and

(continued from page 261) 

DeClerk said she expects more wins over nation- 
ally-ranked opponents and additional national recogni- 
tion as long as Moore is at K-State. 

"I heard that we had gotten some votes for the top 
25," DeClerk said. "That just proves that someone else 
is paying attention to what is happening here. Coach - 
Moore believes in us, and we believe in him. We're 
now ready to contend with anybody." 

The Wildcats did have a chance to qualify to play 
in the Big Eight Tournament, but they lost to Colorado 
in the last match of the season. The loss left K-State with 
a 5-7 record in Big 8 play, good lor a fifth-place finish. 

"We knew that we could have beaten them," 
Young said. "We needed that win, but we just didn't 
play well. It kind of puts a dissappointing end on the Big 
Eight season." 

Moore said since K-State was unable to qualify for 
the Big Eight and NCAA Tournaments there still is 
room for improvement. 

"We feel short of what we wanted," Moore said. 
"Before the season, I thought we had a chance to go to 
the Big 8 Tournament, and I know the players wanted 
to be in the NCAA Tournament. 

"We're close to where we need to be to become a 
good program. I hope we're built for the future."

The Cats responded by recording their first 10- win 
season in 86 years, finishing sixth in the USA Today/ 
CNN Coaches Poll and seventh in the Associated Press 
Poll — the highest marks in school history — and 
dominating one of the top bowl games in college 

"It's a great feeling," Coach Bill Snyder said of the 
1995 season, "something they (the seniors) can 
remember for the rest of their lives and talk to their 
grandchildren about." 

The Cats' storybook season started with skepticism 
of senior quarterback Matt Miller. After transferring 
from Texas A&M and sitting out a year at K-State, he 
had just a few months to convince fans that May was 

Miller dispelled preliminary jitters five games into 
the season, leading the Cats to a 5-0 start as they won 
three straight games — Akron, Northern Illinois and 
Missouri — by a combined score of 141-0. 

The 44-0 win against Northern Illinois served as 
another benchmark of success in the Snyder era, as he 
surpassed Mike Ahearn as the winningest coach in 
school history. 

After squeaking past Oklahoma State 23-17, the 
No. 8 Cats thought they were prepared for a showdown 
with No. 2 Nebraska. Similar to the year before, both 
teams were undefeated and the game was broadcast by 
ABC. Another shot at the Cornhuskers. Another 

chance to prove this year was different. Another blowout 
— Nebraska 49, K-State 25. 

"I thought we were past the point where anyone 
could beat us like this," 
junior wide receiver 
Kevin Lockett said. 

At the time, the loss 
seemed devastating to the 
Cats, and Kansas, the next 
opponent, had just 
humiliated Oklahoma in 
Norman and would come 
to Manhattan undefeated 
and armed with a No. 6 

For Miller, who took 
nothing away from the 
Nebraska game except "a 
dizzy head, a sick feeling 
and a bunch of bumps 
and bruises," redemption 
rested with beating the 
J ay hawks. 

"If we beat them, all 
these feelings will go 
away," he said. 

The Cat offense, 
which was blamed for the loss in Lincoln, played with 
a passion that resulted in a 41-7 victory for K-State — 
its largest victory over Kansas in 40 years — in front of 
a KSU Stadium-record 44,284 fans.

nose tackle, said. "I can't believe this happened." 

For the first time in 16 years, K-State had two 
backs, sophomores Eric Hickson and Mike Lawrence, 
rush for more than 100 yards. The Cats' defense 
grounded the Jayhawks' running game, allowing just 
19 yards. 

"I didn't think anyone could shut our offense down 
like they did," KU coach Glen Mason said. 

K-State carried that emotion through the next two 
games, trouncing No. 25 Oklahoma 49-10 and Iowa 
State 49-7. 

It was the third-straight win against the Sooners, 
sending a resounding signal that the Cats would remain 
among the league's elite. Oklahoma hadn't suffered 
such an overwhelming loss in 50 years, and it was K- 
State's biggest victory ever against the Sooners. 

"This is the worst physical beating I've ever been 
associated with," OU coach Howard Schnellenberger 
said. "I know it could have been worse." 

Miller set a conference record in the game at Ames, 
throwing two touchdown passes and bringing his 
season total to 22, surpassing Nebraska's Vince 
Ferragamo's previous mark of 20. 

"Right now the record doesn't mean as much as it 
will, " Miller said. "But I know someday I'll be bragging 
to my grandchildren about it." 

The Cats arrived at their final game of the season 
against No. 9 Colorado. The winner would play on 
New Year's Day in the Cotton Bowl. 

Falling 144 seconds shy of reserving a spot in 
Dallas, the Cats led 17-13 when Colorado's John 
Hessler orchestrated an 80-yard drive, yielding the 
go-ahead score with a little more than a minute to 
play. The Buffaloes got another touchdown with 45 
seconds left after recovering a K-State fumble in the 
end zone. 

"It hurts," Miller said. "It hurts bad and it will hurt 
for a long time." 

But the Cats would have another day — Dec. 29 at 
the Holiday Bowl in San Diego. They would complete 
the most successful season in school history with a 52- 
21 victory over the Colorado State Rams. 

"After being predisposed to the era of futility, I 
never expected anything like this," senior tight end 
Brian Lojka said. "(The program) has risen to a level of 
optimism to where we can do things that were totally 
inconceivable years ago."

hile Ram fans were few and far between 
in San Diego the week of the Holiday Bowl, 
Wildcat fans turned the west coast into a sea 
of purple. 

"I was happy to see so much purple 
there," Jerrod Westfahl, junor in agricultural 
economics, said. 

"1 think the people down at the Cotton 
Bowl had some second thoughts after 
seeing the game." 

Cotton Bowl officials 

chose Colorado over K- 

State and had to watch a 

sparse crowd at the New 

Year's Day game. 

Heather Lee, senior in 
management, attended the 
Cats' past three bowl games 
but said the fans' spirit and 
support at the Holiday Bowl 
was incomparable to that of 
past years. 

"We heard one person 
say 'I hope the last person 
from Kansas turned out the 
ights,'" Lee said. 
— ^ "I actually think it was a 

Colorado State fan." 
The pep rally Dec. 28 at the San Diego 
Civic Center turned out to be the Cats' 
largest bowl pep rally in history. The K-State 
Marching Band and Mitch Holthus began 
entertaining the crowd but once the players 
arrived, the spotlight turned. 

"We walked in and saw about the same 
size crowd we had at the Copper Bowl pep 
rally," senior wide receiver Mitch Running 

said. "Then we got to the stage and turned 
around and saw the purple in the deck. It was 

"Our fans were going nuts. It was 
something to see." 

That enthusiasm carried over into the 
game where as many as 12,000 purple-clad 
fans packed the south side of Jack Murphy 
Stadium, roaring with delight when the Cats 
took the field. 

"We were awestruck at all the purple in 
the stadium," John Reid, executive director 
of the Hobday Bowl, said. 

"The newspaper out here said there were 
at least 12,000 K-Staters at the game and 
there's no way to know exactly, but I can't 
dispute that figure." 

Those fans got what they expected from 
start to finish. Sophomore running back Eric 
Hickson returned the opening kick-off for 
34 yards, then broke a 1 9-yard run on the first 
play from scrimmage. 

Seven plays later, Hickson earned the 
ball into the end zone for the first score of the 

But matters would get more serious. The 
Rams would also score on their first 
possession, tying the game 7-7 going into the 
second quarter. 

Then every Wildcat fan's heart stopped 
when Colorado State linebacker Nate 
Kvamme slammed head-first into senior 
quarterback Matt Miller on a third-and-long 

The game was stopped and the stadium 

fell silent while team doctors huddled around

season," junior wing Missy Decker 

This was not how it was 

supposed to end. These girl 

tried their hardest. It wasn't 

supposed to be like this. 



Statistically, it was a down year 
for the Wildcats. Coach Brian Agler 
had rescued a dying program in 
1993, posting a 27-27 record in his 
first two years, including a 14-13 
mark in 1995 — K-State's first win- 
ning record since 1991. 

The Cats finished the 1995-96 
season 5-9 in Big 8 play and 14-16 
overall. That was before the team 
was forced to forfeit three confer- 
ence and eight nonconference wins, 
knocking them down to the No. 8 
seed in the Big 8 Tournament. 

The forfeits resulted from the 
NCAA's Feb. 9 suspension of five players, who 
had their eligibility restored before they missed a 
game. Agler and senior point guard Carlene 
Mitchell were also suspended and Jack Hartman, 
K-State's winningest men's basketball coach and a 

notorious opponent of women's basketball in the 
1970s, was appointed as interim coach. 

"This was not how it was supposed to end," 
Hartman said after the team's final loss. "These 
girls tried their hardest. It wasn't supposed to be 
like this." 

The season started on a high note when the 
Cats won the Wildcat Classic Nov. 25-26 with 
wins over Bradley and Lamar. Junior post Andria 
Jones' 29-point performance in the champion- 
ship gave the team the post presence it needed 
alter the graduation ot all-conference star 
Shanele Stires. 

"Andria's really coming on. She's starting to 
come into our system and understand how she 
can score in a lot of different ways," Agler said. 
"And she's earned it. She has worked really 

Wins over Wichita State and Grambling State 
gave the team a 4-0 start before Memphis defeated 
the Cats. Ohio then dealt the team its second 
straight setback in a 69-68 loss Dec. 10.

one of K-State's future stars as freshman postjenny

"I'm still a little nervous, but with each day I'm 
becoming more confident," she said. "Going into 
practice everyday, I was just working as hard as I 
could. So when I got to start, it was just more 
incentive to work even harder."

The Cats recovered from the 
Ohio loss by beating Michigan, but 
trouble was once again on the hori- 

The team dropped consecutive 
games to Southwest Missouri State, 
Northwestern and George Wash- 
ington in the San Juan Shootout in 
Puerto Rico Dec. 16-19. All three 
opposing teams were receiving votes 
in the Associated Press and USA 
Today/CNN Coaches' polls, and 
Northwestern had just cracked the 
AP Poll at No. 25. 

"When you play against good 
competition, you find out what your 
weaknesses are because they get ex- 
ploited and you also find out what 
your strengths are," Agler said. 

"And this is great for our ladies. 
You get to see a different part of the 
world, and they get some time to- 
gether away from campus, which 
really helps them out personally," he 

Junior wing Kjersten Larson said 
travel helped bring the team closer 

"I think we learn a little bit about 
each other," she said. "It almost 
seems like the further we go the 
closer we get." 

The Cats righted themselves 
with a three-game nonconference 
winning streak when they returned 
home, taking an 8-5 record into Big 
8 play. A win over Missouri in the 
conference home opener rekindled 
hopes of a winning season. 

"(Jones) really did an awesome 
job on Erika Martin, with the team 
doubling down and helping her," 
sophomore wing Brit Jacobson, the 
team's leading scorer, said. 

Martin, the leading scorer for 
Missouri and the Big 8, was held to 
four points in the first half. 

The Cats' luck ended there. 
They would fall to Colorado, Iowa 
State and Nebraska before a two-win 
homestand against No. 17 Okla- 
homa State and Oklahoma, who 
gave them their last even conference 
record of the season, 3-3. 

After a nonconference loss to 
Arkansas State, the Cats fell at home 
to Kansas and at Missouri and Colo- 
rado, dropping their record to 11-12 
overall and 3-6 in the Big 8. 

That's when Agler and six players 
were found in violation of NCAA 
rules. Agler had paid five players for 
working at his summer camp, which 
violated NCAA regulations. The 
players' eligibility was immediately 
restored and Agler accepted an ad- 
ministrative position in the Office of 
Institutional Advancement. 

With Hartman at the helm, the 
Cats beat Nebraska Feb. 9 before 
dropping to Iowa State on the road 
Feb. 18 and a 78-42 thrashing of 
Hampton again fueled thoughts of a 
salvageable season. 

However, a 66-56 loss to the 
Jayhawks in Lawrence Feb. 25 and 
news of the forfeits, which dropped 
the Cats from a tie for sixth in the 
conference to No. 8, ended the 
regular season on a down note. 

With a 13-15 record, the Cats 
went to the final Big 8 Tournament 
March 2 in Salina to face Kansas for 
the second time in less than a week. 
They came up short again with a 70- 
64 loss to end the season. 

"I am really proud of my team," 
Hartman said. "We played ex- 
tremely hard. We didn't play as well 
as we have played, we didn't play 
nearly as well as we're capable of 
playing, and we didn't play quite as 
well as we wanted to, but we played 
very hard and got back in the game 
on a couple of occasions."

The Holiday Bowl The National Invitational 
Volleyball Championship. The Big 8 Tournament. 

Whether in the familiar confines of Manhattan or 
on the sunny shores in San Diego, Wildcat athletes 
learned to live in the spotlight. 

For many who were stars in high school, such 
attention seemed normal. 

Others rose to stardom from relative 
obscurity. Varsity squads owed much of 
their success to the hard work and 
diligence of walk-on athletes. 

"I hoped I could eventually get a 
scholarship, because I probably couldn't 
afford to stay otherwise," said Mitch 
Running, a wide receiver who walked 
on the football team in 1991. "A lot of 
people back home thought I was kind of 
stupid. They thought I was a Division 
Ill-caliber player." 

Running proved them wrong. A 
year of playing on the practice squad paid 
off when Coach Bill Snyder announced 
Running would receive a scholarship. 

"It was really exciting," Running, 
senior in social science, said. "He hadn't 
even told me yet, but he said it in the 
newspaper after spring practice. I was just 

By the time he was a senior, Running 

was a nationally recognized figure. He 

started every game his senior year, 

catching 51 passes for 756 yards in the 

regular season. 

Running also excelled on special teams, serving as 

the Cats' punt-return specialist, and in a rare trick play, 

he received a pass from, then completed a pass to, senior 

quarterback Matt Miller. 

"I've had the opportunity to do a lot of things at K- 
State that no one thought I'd do," Running said. "It's 
really been the experience of a lifetime." 

For others, the road to success seemed much 
longer. Todd Hlasney, wide receiver and senior in 
kinesiology, was given an opportunity to play football 
in college. 

"I was recruited by a lot of the junior colleges in the 
area and by Emporia State," Hlasney said. 

Instead, he chose to come to K-State and not play. 
Hlasney said he had a hard time watching games 
because he wanted to be on the field. 

"I missed the opportunity to play and thought I had 
the ability to be out there," he said. 

Hlasney walked on as a sophomore and played 
four years for the Cats without receiving a scholarship, 
but he said the experience was still worth the effort. 

Hlasney caught two passes as a senior, including an 
eight-yard reception against Northern Illinois, the 
longest of his career. 

"It's pretty fulfilling," Hlasney said. "Just getting 
the chance to be part of the team — the chance to do 
what everyone said I couldn't do — made the sacrifice 

"I wish I could have gotten to play more, but when 
you play behind guys line Mitch, Tyson (Schwieger) 
and Kevin (Lockett) , you're grateful for the opportunities 
you get." 

Sara Munson, freshman in civil engineering, also 
waited before joining the Cat basketball team, but not 
long. Although she was offered a scholarship by Wichita 
State, Washburn, K-State and other Big 8 schools, 
Munson originally decided not to play basketball in 

"I always said if I played ball in college, I would play 
for K-State," Munson said. 

"But I was really concerned about the transition 
between high school and college, and I knew academics 
had to be a priority." 

By November, Munson was practicing with the 
team, and when the Cats played their first exhibition 
game Nov. 8, Munson scored four points. 

"I just love basketball," she said. "I found I had time 
to get the things done that I needed, and I decided to 
try playing basketball again." 

Munson became a regular contributor off the 
bench, serving mainly as a defensive specialist. 

What Munson's career held was still uncertain, but 
Running's days in a Cat uniform produced memories 
that would last forever. 

"I look back at some of the games, and it's pretty 
special what we've been able to do," he said. 

"I've always said I've had a storybook career. And

Opening the season Nov. 25 with a 75-72 
overtime win against Bradley, the Wildcats went on 
to start the season with a 3-0 record beating Emporia 
State and Marshall. 

But when the Cats went on the road, trouble hit 
as they lost at Illinois and Washington. 

However, during semester break, the team went 
9-2, losing only to Michigan State and Oklahoma. 

In front of an ESPN audience Jan. 6, the Cats 
clobbered the Iowa State Cyclones 72-55 in Man- 
hattan to open the Big 8 Conference season. 

But the Cats dropped a hard-fought battle with 
Oklahoma 64-59 Jan. 9, despite holding all-confer- 
ence performer Ryan Minor to just 11 points. 

"They just played harder than we did. They 
wanted it," senior forward Tyrone Davis said of the 
Sooners. "We just need to hit our shots." 

Coach Tom Asbury said the Cats' failure came in 
the second half. 

"In the first half, we played as well as we've 
played all year," he said. "In any Big 8 Conference 
game, we should come out to play, and we did." 

After winter break, game attendance picked up, 
but the Cats' record did not. They won only four of 
their last 10 games in conference play. Even playing 
at home was not a sure bet for the Cats. 

They lost a disappointing home game Feb. 7 to

Colorado, 63-64 in overtime. Senior point guard 
Elliot Hatcher made two free throws to take the lead 
53-52 with only 1:26 left to play in regulation, but a 
missed jump shot by sophomore guard Aaron 
Swartzendruber put the game into overtime. 
"We were just run- 

ning our motion of- 
fense, and I got the ball 
and thought I had a 
pretty good look, so I 
took it," Swartzen- 
druber said. "The shot 
felt good, and I thought 
it was in when it left my 
hand, but I left it just a 
little bit long." 

Overtime was just as 
close as regulation play. 
The Cats opened with a 
four-point lead, but the 
Buffaloes came back to 
tie the game 63-63 with 
only 34 seconds remain- 
ing. Colorado made one late free throw 
to hand the Cats a loss. 

With no time to dwell on the defeat, the team 
traveled to Stillwater, Okla., to take on the Okla- 
homa State Cowboys. The Cats had beat the Pokes 
62-59 at home earlier in the season, and coming off 
their second-consecutive loss, the Cats wanted to 
leave Oklahoma with a win.

But the Pokes had other plans. 

The Cats trailed by as many as 25 in the second 
half before OSU pulled out a 83-60 victory. The 
only bright spot for the Cats was senior guard Brian 
Gavin's season-high 12 points. 

It was the third game the Cats had played in less 
than a week, but Asbury said he tried not to let that 
be an excuse. 

"I don't know (if we looked tired). We had 
nothing to be tired about," Asbury said. "We cer- 
tainly looked tired in terms of our performance, but 
I'm not certain that we were tired." 

With 1 1 days off until their next game, the Cats 
rested up and came out ready to play against Missouri 
Feb. 21. 

With a 69-64 victory over the Tigers, the Cats 
snapped a six-game losing streak to Missouri. 
Swartzendruber scored a career-high 24 points off 
the bench and his 14 first-half points helped the Cats 
to a 39-36 halftime lead. 

Asbury said the Cats' defense was the key to the 

"I thought we tightened up our deiense. We ran 
them down to the end of the shot clock," he said. "I 
thought we started to do a better job on (Julian) 
Winfield. He was really hurting us in that stretch 
prior to that." 

Next up for the Cats was a meeting of intrastate 
rivals. Despite coming off the victory over the Tigers, 
the Cats couldn't pull it together to beat the No. 5 
Kansas Jayhawks. With six minutes left in the game, 
the Cats pulled within three points after a basket by 
freshman Ayome May, who scored a career-high 20 
points in the game. The effort was not enough as the 
Jayhawks won the game, 66-77. 

With only two games left in regular-season play 
the focus turned to post-season play. 

The Cats traveled to Ames, Iowa, Feb. 28 where 

they had not won since 1990. Freshman forward 
Shawn Rhodes tied the game 78-78 with 1:40 
remaining and Davis made two free throws to put K- 
State up by two. But the Cyclones answered, and the 
Cats couldn't get a last-second shot to drop, sending 
the game to overtime. 

The Cats controlled overtime and won 92-87. 
The game's heroes were Swartzendruber and 
Hatcher, who each had 22 points, and Rhodes, who 
finished with 18. 

"I think our whole team wanted this," 
Swartzendruber said. "We have that feeling (that we 
could go to the NCAA Tournament). It would be 
nice to get a win at Nebraska." 

Trying to keep the magic going, the Cats trav- 
eled to Lincoln, Neb., to take on the Cornhuskers, 
but Nebraska broke its eight-game losing streak in a 
70-66 win over the Cats. Hopes for an NCAA 
Tournament bid rested on the Cats' approaching 
performance in the Big 8 Tournament, as they 
finished the regular season 16-10, 7-7 in conference 
play and tied for fourth with Oklahoma State. 

"Some of the guys who normally shoot good, 
including me, just weren't," Rhodes said. "It was just 
one of those nights, I guess." 

The season did not end there for the Cats. The 
Big 8 Tournament gave K-State renewed hope as 
Davis sank a pair of free throws with 9.6 seconds left 
to lift the Cats past Oklahoma State, 58-55, in the 
quarterfinals of the Big 8 tournament March 8 before 
failing to Kansas, 61-55, the next day in the semifi- 

The Cats' performance was good enough to earn 
them a birth in the NCAA Tournament, the first 
such trip since 1993. A No. 10 seed, K-State would 
face New Mexico in the first round. 

"I'm just glad we're in," Asbury said. "They're 
certainly a quality opponent and a well-coached

The fall travel paid off for the team and individual 

Senior Karina Kuregian garnered K-State's first 
All-Big 8 selection in two 
years by going 28-6 in 
singles and 1 9-2 in doubles 
during the spring. 

At the Big 8 post- 
season tournament April 
21-23, Kuregian, and 
senior partner Martine 
Shrubsole won the 
doubles title, and Kuregian 
finished second in the 
singles division. 

In the fall, there was 
no team play with all of 
the action being played 
on an individual and 
doubles-team basis. After hosting their own tournament 
to start the season, the Wildcats traveled to Baltimore, 
Salt Lake City, Topeka and Pacific Palisades, Calif. 

From the start, Kuregian, who Coach Steve Bietau 
called the best player on the team — maybe in the 
conference — struggled and often had to fight her way 
through the consolation bracket. 

In the season opener, the Travelers Express 
Invitational in Manhattan Sept. 22-23, Kuregian won

better. But to beat the No. 5 

player in the nation is significant. 

her first match, but then lost to eventual champion 
Mary Beth Maggert ot Purdue in the second round. 

"I thought Karina played recklessly," Bietau said. 
"She wasn't playing with any regard for what she was 
doing out there." 

Kuregian lost in the first round ol the National Clay 
Court Championship in Baltimore Sept. 28-Oct. 1 and 
didn't enter the Big 8 Coaches Indoors in Topeka Oct. 

But at the Rivera Ail-American Championship in 
Pacific Palisades, Calif, Oct. 19-22, Kuregian opened 
the tournament by upsetting No. 5 Margie Lepsi of 
Tennessee in two sets. 

It was the highest-ranked player Kuregian, who 
was ranked No. 14 at the time, had ever defeated. 

"This is a great win," Bietau said. "This is Karina's 
best win, and I think she could have played better. But 
to beat the No. 5-ranked player in the nation is 

"She's had a difficult time this fall, and she's 
struggled to find confidence. This will certainly go a 
long way in helping that, and it's a good step to take 
prior to regionals." 

At the Rolex Regional Championship in Salt Lake 
City Nov. 8-11, Kuregian recorded two wins in the 
consolation round. 

While Kuregian was getting most of the attention, 
sophomores Yana Dorodnova and Lena Piliptchak 
created their own highlights. 

In the fall season, Dorodnova, who came to K- 
State last season from Moscow, Russia, shocked the 
conference by advancing to the finals of the Big 8

"Dorodnova had a great tournament," Bietau said. 
"Probably the best thing was the way she fought. The 
overall impression that everyone had was that this was 
a very strong tournament, and making the finals is a 
pretty good accomplishment." 

Dorodnova was the only consistent singles player 
to finish with a winning record at 8-5. Kuregian was 5- 
8, junior Karen Nicholson 4-4, sophomore Dinah 
Watson 6-6 and junior Nicole Lagerstrom 4-5. 

Freshman Yasmine Osborne played just seven 
singles matches in the fall, but her come-from-behind 
victory over Purdue's Dena Degyansky in the Traveler's 
Express Invitational provided an early glimpse ot what 
the Cats were capable of doing. After splitting the first 
two sets, Osborne fell behind 5-2 in the third before 
rallying to win 7-5. 

"I started paying attention to what I was doing out 
there and I kept batting balls into play," Osborne said. 

The other European newcomer, Piliptchak, a 
native of Kiev, Ukraine, went 5-5 in singles, and 

teamed with three different partners to win seven 
doubles matches. 

The 1996 spring season began on familiar territory 
for the Cats. With team scoring once again on the 
boards, the team's first spring tournament produced 
few highlights, as the Cats fell Jan. 26 to Northwestern 
in Topeka. 

They rebounded Feb. 3 with a 7-0 victory over 
Creighton in Manhattan. Dorodnova, having taken 
over the No. 1 singles spot, cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 rout 
of Creighton's Traci Miller. 

"I just wanted to control the points, put some 
pressure on her and not let her dictate any of the game, " 
Dorodnova said. 

As newcomers to the team, Dorodnova and 
Piliptchak had to make the transition from European to 
American tennis surfaces. 

"Both of them are playing a little bit of the clay- 
court tennis on the hard court, and they haven't fully 
adjusted their game to the hard courts, but that doesn't 
happen overnight," Bietau said. "They both fought 
pretty hard and have a new appreciation for the level of 
play in college tennis."

The Wildcats' highest finish in the fall was sixth 
at the University of Texas- Arlington Nov. 12-14. 

The momentum came from a 
solid performance in the '95 spring 
season. Returning to the course after 
a three-month break, the team won 
its first tournament of the spring season 
at Southwest Texas State. 

From there, the Cats went on to 
place fifth in the Big 8 Conference, 
their best finish in two decades. 

"We were real excited, especially 
about the Big 8 because that hadn't 
been done in 20 years," senior Jason 
Losch said. "It was something we were 
proud of — something that hadn't 
been accomplished for a while and 
should' ve canied over into the summer 

and fall seasons. But we kind of left it behind." 

The experience came from a roster dominated 
by upperclassmen. Coach Mark Elliott said maturity 
was one of the team's strengths. 

"Last spring, we had four juniors and a 
sophomore. Now we have four seniors and a 
junior, so now we have experience to our 
advantage," he said. "They're a good group of 

kids. They go about things the right way." 

Elliott said age could also hinder a player's 
performance. By the time a player's senior year comes 
around he may have put golf on the back burner. 

"Some seniors have a hard time in the spring 
semester," he said. "They may not play as well as 
they can because they're almost done with school 
and are ready to go on to other things. By their 
senior year, it's easy to lose interest. 

"If they're really good, they may have the 
confidence in their game to go on and do something 
with golf. If not, it makes it more difficult for them." 

Senior Troy Halterman said he witnessed senior 
burnout during the two years he played at Oklahoma 
State and even during his first year at K-State. 

"The senior year is the hardest," Halterman 
said. "The athletes who usually do well do great in 
their junior year and then kind of drop off in their 
senior year. I think they put too much pressure on 
themselves. They want to make sure they have a 
really good last year." 

But neither experience nor momentum could 
make the fall season what it might have been. 
Halterman, who tied for 12th at both Stephen F. 
Austin-Crown Colony Intercollegiate Golf 
Tournament Feb. 23-24 and University of Texas- 
Arlington's tournament, was usually the Cats' top 

"We finished average in our tournaments in

weren't really any highlights. We usually finished

We need to work more on their

Kristi Knight, who took over the position of 
head coach in July, said she hoped having a full-

"I think it was hard on them because they 
didn't know the type of person they'd be getting 
and the expectations they'd have on them year 
after year," Knight said. "It affected 
their ability to set goals and improve. 
Senior Debbie Chrystal said 
Knight was the seventh coach she 
had worked with in her five years of 
playing golf at K-State. She said 
having a full-time coach could only 
help the program. 

"They found an awesome person 
in Kristi, and I think she's here to stay 
awhile," Chrystal said. "It's hard when 
you change coaches so often. You 
work hard for a year and then you get 
handed over to someone else." 

Purling together to overcome the 
coaching obstacle, senior Trisha 
Hoover said team members had 
always stood by each other. 

"We always stick together because •we're in it 
together," she said. "The key to any team is to 
learn to work as a team before you can win." 
With a diverse team loaded with 

underclassmen, Chrystal said players were able to 
gain different perspectives from each other. 

"It helps because you get two sides of the 
fence," she said. "The younger people are motivated 
and excited about playing. For the older people, 
they push us and motivate us to work hard." 

Although this was her first time in a coaching 
position, Knight said playing golf at Oklahoma 
had prepared her for the job. 

"I try always to be fair and honest and let the 
players know where they stand," she said. "I know 
I can't make everybody happy. You've got to do 
whatever's best at the time and for the team. My 
main objective is to be open with them." 

Starting the year on a good note, Knight said the 
team tied their lowest team total of 968 at Iowa 
Sept. 15-17, but still only ranked fifth out of five 
teams. The team struggled at the last two tournaments 
of the fall season, finishing last in a 14-team field at 
the Sunflower Invitational Oct. 15-17 in Wichita 
and 1 1 th-out-of- 1 2 at the Lamar Lady Cardinal 
Invitational Oct. 29-3 1 in Beaumont, Texas. 

The main obstacles Knight hoped to overcome 
were the large team totals in rounds and the 
number of double bogies. 

Knight said players also needed to work on 
their confidence and not allow shaky starts to get 
them down. 

"We need to work more on their belief in 
themselves," she said. "That goes back to the past 
coaching situation. It should give them stability 
having a women's head coach."

Our women's team is pretty 
strong. We've got people in 
every area. There's no real 

glaring weakness. 


Returning athletes gave the 
team an experienced and talented 

One returner, sophomore 
Ashlie Kinton, placed first in the 
women's 3, 000-meter race at the 
KSU Invitational Feb. 3. 

"It's the first time I've run it, so 
I wasn't real sure what I really wanted 
to do," Kinton said. "I just went out 
and I felt really relaxed." 

She said the season went 
quickly, especially once the team 
members began improving their 

"My times have come down 
some and all my hard work is paying 
off," she said. "I really want to concentrate on the 
mile and bring my time down." 

The women's team soundly beat out 
Oklahoma State for a first-place finish in the 
invitational, while the men fell short of a first- 

place finish and came in second behind Southwest 
Missouri State. 

Overall, the coaches said they were happy 
with the invitational's results. 

"From the races I've seen, I think we've done 
really well," Coach Terry Drake said. "Scott Galas 
had a great race in the 800 and a big PR (personal 
record) for him and the girls in the 1,000 ran three 
ot the fastest times in the Big 8." 

The Cats challenged themselves several times 
throughout the season, facing top runners at meets 
like the Husker Invitational Feb. 9-10 in Lincoln, 

Sophomore Vannita Kinard placed fourth in 
the women's triple jump with a distance of 42 feet, 
7 inches. This was the team's only automatic 
qualifying mark for the meet, although four team 
members claimed NCAA provisional qualifying 
marks including freshman Renetta Seiler and senior 
Kirsten Schultz. Both qualified in the women's 
20-pound weight throw. 

The men's and women's distance medley 
teams placed third at the Husker Invitational. The 
men's distance medley team had a time of 1 0:03.04 
and the women finished in 1 1:51.35.

Coors Invitational Feb. 16. 

This meet was not as intense as the Husker 
Invitational because many teams were preparing 
tor conference meets. 

"Basically, we just want to do things to 
sharpen up for (the Big 8 meet), " Cliff Rovelto, 
head track coach, said. 

K-State alumni also ran in the Coors 
Invitational, including Nicole Green who won 
the women's 400-meter race with a time of 54:07. 

Steve Fritz, former K-State decathlete and 
Olympic-hopeful, also qualified for the national 
indoor championships. 

Seven men picked up first-place finishes at 
the meet, including junior Jeff Martin in the 400- 
meter run; junior Ryan Johnson in the 800-meter 
run; junior Ken Dennard in the 55-meter hurdles; 
senior Ryan Clive-Smith in the 3,000-meter run; 
senior Itai Margalit in the high jump; sophomore 
Marshall Grayson in the long jump; and senior 
Brian Eilerts in the weight throw. 

The women who finished first at the Coors 
Invitational included sophomore Jill Francis in the 
400-meter run; senior Irma Betancourt in the 
600-meter run; junior Samantha McNamara in 
the 1 , 600-meter run; and freshman Renetta Seiler 
in the shot put. 

After strong performances at the Coors

"I think we're getting there. Our women's 
team is pretty strong," Rovelto said after the 
invitational. "We've got people in every area. 
There's no real glaring weaknesses." 

At the Big 8 Championships March 8-9 in 
Indianapolis, both the men's and women's teams 
ended the indoor season with strong finishes. 

The women's team placed third behind 
Nebraska and Colorado. Nebraska had 197 points, 
Colorado finished with 153, and K-State had 97, 
placing the Cats ahead of Kansas. The men ended 
the season in sixth place with 62 points, nine 
points behind fifth-place Kansas.

competing athletically and academically a team aspect of sports 


We're just here to 

make life easier on 

the coaches — let 

them worry about the 
important things while 
we do the little things. 
They have better things 
to do than worry about 
getting tapes in the mail 



FOR MOST, the world of sports existed on the 
court or the playing field. It the game extended beyond 
those simple boundaries, it reached only to the coaches 
and the fans in the stands. 

Hardly noticed by the casual observer were the 
men and women who sat on the far end 
of the bench, the student managers and 
trainers with the water bottles and the 
marker boards — people whose presence 
helped everything come together. 

"It's literally essential for us," 
volleyball Coach Jim Moore said. 
"Without a full-time secretary — all of 
the other things we want to do in the 
office — they make us able to exist." 

What was it managers did to make 
such a difference? 

"Everything from laundry to 
secretarial things to doing stats to helping 
set up for practice," Moore said. 

"I do their laundry," Alicia Kendall, 
manager tor the women's basketball team 
and sophomore in pre-veterinary 
medicine, said. "And during practice I 
run the clocks." 

Kendall walked on the team as a 
freshman, playing on the practice squad 
but never getting into a game. She chose 
to be a manager when playing was no 
longer an option. 

"It started out last year when I 
played," Kendall said. "When Coach 
(Brian) Agler said I probably wouldn't 
get any playing time this year, he offered 
to let me stay on as a manager." 
Kendall said the position allowed her to stay close 
to the friends she made practicing with the team. 

"I stayed mainlyjust to be around the game and the 
team," she said. "I made some friends last year, and I 
wanted to be able to stay close to things." 

For others, like Brad Newitt, who coordinated the 
men's basketball team's videotape operations by taping 
games and obtaining game tape from opponents, 

managing was a step toward a higher goal — coaching. 

"I want to be a high school coach," Newitt, senior 
in secondary education, said. "This allows me to learn 
about the game by being at the practices." 

Barb Stucky, volunteer assistant with the volleyball 
team and senior in secondary education, said the time 
with the team could be invaluable for a future coach. 

"I'm going into coaching, and since high school I 
haven't really had a chance to work with an organized 
team," Stucky said. "This is a good opportunity to 
work with a team." 

Attending practice helped managers learn about 
several aspects of coaching. 

"They can pick up drills that they like, learn 
techniques for skill development, see various offenses 
and defenses in practice and see how coaches deal with 
players," Moore said. "Then they can choose what 
they find most appropriate and effective." 

Newitt said working with the team would greatly 
enhance his chances of landing a coaching job. 

"Getting to spend the time with the team, not only 
do you learn more about the way the game operates and 
the best ways to run a team, you also get the chance to 
work with some great coaches," he said. 

"When it comes time to apply for a coaching job, 
that name on the resume and that letter of reference can 
go a long way." 

Whether it was laundry or videotape or filling 
water bottles, the work of the managers came down to 
one thing — freeing up the time of the coaching staff. 

"We're just there to make life easier for the coaches 
— let them worry about the important things while we 
do the little things," Newitt said. "They have better 
things to do than worry about getting tapes in the 

Moore agreed, adding his appreciation for the 
contributions students make to his program. 

"Ourjob is to coach," he said. "So it's great to have 
someone to help with the other things." 

Players, coaches and managers made up a single 
unit with a single goal — a winning program. 

"We're part of the team who just aren't on the 
court," Kendall said.

the women's basketball team

Tournament in Salina March 2-

functions for the teams, 
including keeping stats, 
videotaping the games, filling 
water bottles and doing the 
laundry. Managers were 
required to attend all games 
and practices, and help out 
wherever they were needed.

her 1994 performance by claiming both the 200- and

record in the 400 with a 
time of 51.93 seconds.

Five Cats — Green, Hope, Wentland, senior Kristen 
Schultz (javelin) andjuniorKarissa Owens (100 meters) 
— qualified for the NCAA Championships in Knoxville, 

At the May 31 -June 3 meet, Owens placed fifth in 
her 100-meter dash preliminary, but her time ol 1 1.75 
was not fast enough to advance her to the semifinals. 

"Karissa didn't get the start that she usually does, 
and even though she finished well, it cost her the race," 
Rovelto said. 

Hope placed third in her 400-meter preliminary 
heat with a time of 53.28, but did not advance. 

Green won that semifinal heat with a time of 52.53. 
Taking that confidence into the final, she raced to a first 
place finish of 52.01. 

Top honors for K-State went to Wentland, who 
placed second in the high jump. Yet after leading the 
field the entire season, she said the runner-up finish was 
hard to take. 

"I have to say I was a little bit disappointed," 
Wentland said. "I had a really good year and up until 
the NCAA meet I really thought I could win it. But I 
injured myself in the meet, and it was hard to have 
come that far and not win." 

In spite of some impressive individual marks, the 
men's team did not achieve the same success at the Big 
8 Championships. The Cats' 78 points were good for 
a fifth-place finish.

Sophomore TJ. Turner (javelin), junior Travis 
Livingston (1 10-meter hurdles) and seniors Bill Fields 
(200 meters) and Ed Broxterman (high jump) qualified 
for the NCAA Championships. 

At the Big 8 meet, Broxterman placed second in 
the high jump behind fellow Cat senior Itai Margaht. 
Though neither's mark was enough to qualify for the 
NCAA Championships, Broxterman had passed a 
qualifying height earlier in the season. 

Turner was the only other Cat to claim a Big 8 title, 
setting a school record with his 232' 7" javelin toss. 

Livingston and Fields both finished second in their 
events, with Livingston running for a personal best of 
13.88 in the 110-meter hurdles. 

Despite the team's fifth-place finish, Rovelto said 
he was pleased with the men's performance. 

"The men really performed well. We couldn't have 

asked for more from them," he said. "With all the 
people missing due to injuries, I never dreamed we'd 
finish as high as fifth." 

At the NCAA Championships, Broxterman 
highlighted the events for K-State, battling Arkansas' 
Ray Doakes for the high jump title. After they both 
cleared 7' 4- 1 /2", the bar was moved to 7' 5-3/4". Both 
competitors failed to clear their next three tries, giving 
Doakes the win on misses. 

"He had a very good final attempt at 7' 5-3/4", as 
the bar got higher, he just got better," Rovelto said. 

After personal letdowns at earlier competitions, 
Broxterman was glad to finally come up with a good 
performance in a big meet. 

"I feel that I finally got the monkey off my back," 
Broxterman said. "Since I didn't do as well as I should 
have at the NCAA indoor meet in March, it was good 
to perform well here."

302 -Betancourt- 

n the spotlight 


What began as friendly competition among sisters 
grew into a learning experience and a shot at Olympic glory. 



She started out competing against 
Irma Betancourt, senior in fi- 
nance and varsity cross country and 
track runner, grew up with four sisters, 
all runners like herself. 

When Betancourt was 10, her 
older sister Norma was discovered by a 
coach at a small competition. The next 
day, the four sisters began training with 

"After that, we felt like it was a 
necessity, like our bodies couldn't go 
without it," Betancourt, a Mexico na- 
tive, said. "When you don't run, you 
feel nervous or you feel angry. You 
know that if you run, you are going to 
feel better." 

Once Betancourt discovered her 
love for running, she started competing. 
She became a three-time Mexican na- 
tional champion in the 800-meter and 
1,500-meter races. 

Betancourt started thinking about 
competing in the Olympics when she 
was 19 and began training seriously, 
hoping to run for Mexico in the 1992 

"I thought I could make it because it 
wasn't that far away," she said. "I had to 
run a 2:03 m the 800 and I had a 2:05." 

"I quit school and started getting 
ready for the Olympic games, but I 
couldn't make it because before the trials 
I got hurt and couldn't run anymore," 
Betancourt said. 

She decided to return to school and 
eventually, she began training again. 
However, Betancourt decided training 
and attending college in Mexico was too 
difficult because the club where she 
trained was two hours from her house. 

At first, her father was reluctant to let 
her come to the United States, 
Betancourt said, but he eventually real- 

by as h ley 

ized the need for his daughter to attend 
an American school. 

"He knew that I had to get away 
because I was not going to do anything 
in Mexico," Betancourt said. "All the 
good athletes there in Mexico had to 
quit school and just focus on their run- 

For Betancourt, the decision to at- 
tend K-State was an easy one. Not only 
was she extended an athletic scholar- 
ship, but she was also given the chance 
to learn English through the 
University's English Language Pro- 
gram, an opportunity she had not had in 

Her junior year, she placed fifth on 
the 800-meter all-time indoor honor 
roll and as a senior, Betancourt made it 
to the national cross country meet 
where she finished 1 12th. 

Disappointed with her finish, 
Betancourt said it was hard to compete 
without her teammates there. 

"I know that when I run with the 
team, I can run faster because I know I 
have to run faster for them," she said. 
"This time it was weird because I was by 

Coach Terry Drake said he felt 
Betancourt's drive and determination 
set an example for other team members. 

"They saw her progress and said 
'We can make the same progress,' 
Drake said. "That will be a big part of 
the team for the next few years." 

As she left her mark on the other 
runners, Betancourt began to think 
again of her dream to someday represent 
Mexico in the Olympics. 

"Right now, I have school and I 
have my running also, but I have many 
things going on here," she said "I think 
about it and I'm going to try very hard, 
but I know it is going to be harder."

W'hat would campus look like 
if there were no sports? No 
Memorial Stadium full of soccer 
players. No Ahearn Field House surrounded 
by campers hoping to get that prime 
basketball ticket. No Nichols Theatre — 
originally Nichols Gymnasium. 

More importantly, some faces would be 
noticeably absent from campus. Faces that 
might have stayed in their home states. Faces 
that needed a scholarship athletics could 
provide. Faces that wanted a different 
academic program. 

"If it wasn't for sports I wouldn't be at 
K-State now," said Jacque Derstein, 
middle-distance runner and freshman in 
biological and agricultural engineering. 
Derstein said he couldn't have afforded 
tuition without a partial scholarship from 
the track program. "I would be at Butler 
County Community College." 

Others said they might not have even 
known about K-State had it not been for 
their involvement in sports. 

"I didn't know much about K-State 
until my recruiting trip," Chris Schulte, 
tennis team member and sophomore in 
elementary education, said. "Most of my 
family went to KU." 

Once they arrived at K-State, athletes 
began to realize the benefits of participating 
in sports — everything from meeting new 
people to building character — benefits 
they might not have been able to find 

"(Participating in sports) helps with a lot 
of things in life — toughens you," Shawn 
Rhodes, men's basketball team member and 
freshman in arts and sciences, said. 
"Sometimes you get emotionally tired, but 

you have to fight through it. Having gone 
through that will help in life." 

Sports taught Schulte lessons that reach 
far beyond the court. 

"With our team, we have a lot of foreign 
players, so it's really broadened my horizons," 
she said. 

Would there be any 
benefits to not having sports?

sports she would have time 
to develop her musical

she said. "It definitely fills

to do. 

"It helps with planning. You really 
have to set aside times for specific things 
because your time is so limited. And in that

In spite of all of the time and energy they 
required, most athletes agreed sports were a 
valuable and enjoyable way to spend time — 
something they would not want to do 

"I obviously enjoy it if I'm still doing it 
today or I'd have quit a long time ago," 
Thorpe said. "It gives me an excuse to stay

Athletes and fans would not be the only 
ones to suffer if there were no sports. 
Scholarship funds and Manhattan 
businesses would also be negatively atfected. 

Product licensing and marketing, 
entertainment and shopping brought in 
approximately $4 million a year to Manhattan, 
according to John Fairman, assistant vice 
president for institutional advancement, and 
Becky Blake, director of Manhattan 
Convention and Visitors Bureau. 

"When I first got here (in 1987), we made 
about $7,000 a year," Fairman said. "And the 
marketplace had put no real demands on us. 
So the products were mediocre at best." 

A dramatic increase in revenue was due 
to strong marketing and the introduction of 
a solid football program, Fairman said. 

"Then came a new football coach and a 
new logo," he said. "By then, we were in 
place with a solid program." 

Strong wins in regular season play and 
the 1993 Copper Bowl victory led to 
marketing interest from national companies. 

"We still couldn't get in to the national 
companies like Starter," Fairman said. "But 
when the wins started increasing, interest 

"It culminated with the Copper Bowl 
victory," he said. "At that point, all of the 
major companies were becoming interested." 

In 1995, K-State was the 10th fastest- 
growing school in the nation in terms of 
marketing dollars, bringing in $241,268 in 
licensing fees. 

The money from marketing and licensing 
fees went directly to the University's general 
academic scholarship fund. 

"Our program requires a 7-1/2 percent 
fee on the wholesale value," Fairman said. 
"At some schools, the money goes to the 
bookstore, some to the president's office. 

We are one of about 30 that have it all go to 

Besides benefiting the University, athletic 
events brought in around $500,000 per game 
to Manhattan businesses, Blake said. 

Shannon Maddux, marketing and 
advertising director for Manhattan Town 
Center, said the mall experienced a minimum 
35-percent sales increase on game days. 

"I don't have a dollar amount because we 
don't do a daily sales type of evaluation," 
Maddux said. "But 35 percent is an average 
because some of our stores obviously are not 
the type of stores that are going to see an 
increase, but others, such as Sports Page, are 
going to see a huge increase." 

Aggieville merchants sponsored athletic 
events and reaped the benefits of game days, 
Cheryl Sieben, director of the Aggieville 
Business Association, said. 

"I'd say the majority of the merchants 
really benefit greatly on game days," Sieben 
said. "You have a lot of out-of-town visitors 
before and after the games. The stores and 
restaurants are busy with out-ot-towners and 
even local fans." 

In a world without sports, Aggieville 
businesses would generate much less revenue. 

"Not having sports would definitely make 
a big impact on Aggieville," Sieben said. "If 
we didn't have sports, the businesses would 
see a major change in their business. But I 
don't think it would put anybody out ot 

Maddux said the Town Center would 
lose some customers if sports didn't exist, but 
the businesses would not suffer much. 

"Sports revenue is not the only thing that 
makes or breaks the businesses, but it sure is 
one of the stronger draws," he said. "But 
without the games we would not be bringing 
in the large amount of people."

Sports played at least a small part in 
most people's lives. However, few 
had an intimate relationship with 
sports like former men's basketball coach 
Jack Hartman. 

A quarterback and point guard for Okla- 
homa A&M (now Oklahoma State) in the 
1950s, Hartman played basketball for leg- 
endary coach Henry Iba before embarking 
on his own coaching career. 

"I've never been gainfully employed," 
Hartman said. "My whole life has been 
wrapped up in sports. Even after I was done 
coaching they put me behind a microphone, 
although that's more a hobby than anything 

Hartman racked up a 150-46 record in 
seven years at Coffeyville Community Col- 
lege, including the last undefeated season in 
community college history. He coached 
Southern Illinois University to a 144-64 
record over a seven-year period before go- 
ing 295- 1 69 in 1 6 years to become K-State's 
all-time winningest coach. 

Hartman, who coached the Wildcats 
from 1970-86 and served as the women's 
basketball interim coach in '96, said al- 
though it was the wins he remembered the 
most, the losses taught him and his players 
most about life. 

"You learn a lot from losing," he said. 
"Life isn't just a bed of roses. It's full of 
struggles and disappointments. Until you 
learn to live with those — and more impor- 
tantly, learn to learn from them — you're 
going to stay disappointed. 

"Sports can help you through that. You 
learn the most when you play a really good 
opponent, someone good enough to show 
you what you should be doing." 

And sports were more than just winning 

and losing. The ideas of competition and 
cooperation were intrinsically linked to the 
sporting world. 

"There is an element of cooperation in 
sports that doesn't always show up in the 
record books, but without it 
you get nowhere," Hartman 
said. "A player can't score 30 
points without someone to 
give him the ball — and if he 
and his team aren't playing 
defense, it won't matter 
anyway. A quarterback can't 
throw a touchdown pass 
without having a receiver to 
catch it and some linemen to 
make sure he doesn't get 

"Who should get more 
credit, the receiver -who 
catches the ball or the two 
others who draw off the de- 
fense? Everything you do, 
it's all part of a team effort, 
and the athlete who doesn't 
realize that — or the busi- 
nessman or the journalist or 
what-have-you — isn't go- 
ing to be very successful." 

So what would 
Hartman's world, both personally and the 
world around him, have been like without 

"That's a very depressing question," he 
said. "First, I would have to find a job and 
earn an honest living. But more impor- 
tantly, a major part of our lives would be 
missing. There are a lot of lessons in life, and 
sports are a fun way to learn those lessons. 
Without sports, we'd have a pretty dull, 
bleak world."

Sports had a far-reaching effect on 
society — and maybe no better ex- 
ample existed than K-State. From 
rallying around the football team to the pick- 
up games of volleyball to the NCAA Tour- 
nament pools, it was hard for students to 
imagine the University without sports. 

Students said varsity sports provided a 
channel through which the rest of the world 
viewed the University. 

"A lot of people hear 
about K-State through see- 
ing our games on TV or our 
scores in the papers," Erik 
Pollom, sophomore in soci- 
ology, said. "I don't know 
how many of those people 
end up coming to K-State, 
but there have to be some. 
And they probably wouldn't 
be here otherwise." 

The absence of sports 
could cause other changes in 
the University as well. 

"The number of stu- 
dents would drop, and with 
that would come cuts," 
Mark Wendt, senior in secondary educa- 
tion, said. "I can see instructors having to be 
laid off because of declining enrollment if 
we suddenly got rid of sports." 

President Jon Wefald said while K-State 
was the university of choice for Kansas high 
school students in the 1990s, that was not 
always the case — and sports might have 
been a key reason for the change. 

"When I got here, we were not the 
school of choice in Kansas," he said. "It 
wasn't until 1988 or '89 that we earned that 
distinction, about the time we hired (football 
coach) Bill Snyder and made the 'Elite Eight' 
of the NCAA basketball tournament. Both 




inside and outside the state, it's definitely a 

Once a student had chosen to attend a 
school, sports provided benefits. Some, like 
opportunities for exercise and socialization, 
were obvious. 

"I don't think a student can be very well- 
balanced without something along those 
lines," Wendt said. "We need time for work 
and we need time for play. I think you need 
to be fit in all aspects of life — the physical, 
the mental, the spiritual and the emotional 
— and sports give an outlet for all of those to 
some degree or other." 

Some benefits, like capital improve- 
ments on campus, were not so obvious. 

"Most people may not look this far from 
the immediate subject, but you can probably 
even tie a lot of campus improvements to 
alumni pride. From library expansion to the 
art museum, these things seem to coincide 
time-wise with the success of our football 
team," Wendt said. 

Wefald said sports were a must at a 
university the size of K-State. 

"The pursuit of academic excellence has 
to be No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 
in terms of importance. That's why we're 
here," he said. "But ifyou're a member of the 
Big 8 or Big 12 Conference, you have to be 
competitive in athletics, too." 

Without sports, Wendt said K-Staters 
would have fewer things in common to look 
back on. 

"When you look at 9,000 to 10,000 
students at every football game or the num- 
ber of people who play intramurals, I think it 
would be hard to have a unity of student 
experience without sports," he said. 

In Wefald's eyes, it all came down to one 

"People love a winner," he said.

cooking and cleaning teaches 


to rely on each other 

U Rv I I Km 

By J.J. Kuntz 

Cooperative living through daily duties brought the 
Alpha of Clovia members closer together. 

"It's not just living with 60 other women, it's 
interacting," Janell Coe, house president and senior in 
agricultural journalism, said. 

Clovia, established in 1931 by seven students in 4- 
H, was the only scholarship house affiliated with the 
Kansas 4-H foundation. 

"We have a full range of majors," Monica Wilson, 
house vice-president and senior in accounting, said. "We 
aren't all agriculture majors like some people might 

But, most members had 4-H or similar backgrounds. 

"The foundation required 90 percent of the house 
to be past 4-H or similar activity members," Wilson 
said. "They also act like our landlord, taking care of 
major repairs and holding our lease." 

As part of the cooperative living, each member was 
required to complete four or five hours of duties per 
week, which helped keep expenses down. 

"Doing our own cooking, cleaning and general 
upkeep of the house relieved the financial burden for 
many house members," Coe said. 

The cooking and the baking was done by members. 

"It was a pretty big responsibility (being a cook)," 
Lesley Folkerts, sophomore in arts and sciences, said. 
"You have all the girls counting on you. If you forget 
that you have to cook, someone would have to fill in 
for you and that might mess up their schedule." 

The house had members who were used to pitching 
in and lending a hand, Coe said. 

"I think most of the girls enjoyed doing their duties," 
Coe said. "We assigned them to certain duties but the girls 
could request which duties they would like to do." 

In the cooperative living environment, each member 
had a daily set duty. 

"I had two set duties this year. I was the early lunch 
cook, so I was responsible for getting everything started," 
Folkerts saici. "I was also the late cook after dinner, so I 
made sure all tables were cleaned and dishes were stacked 
for the dishwasher." 

Members were also given rotating duties. Some 
rotating duties included cleaning bathrooms, sweeping 
and spending time with the housemother. 

"We assign two girls to escort Mom to dinner during 
the week," Wilson said. "Sometimes we would help her 
with errands or go with her to a craft show." 

With members involved in many activities, it was 
sometimes difficult for them to make time to spend with 
mom, Folkerts said. 

"Because she has her own apartment she can 
sometimes get isolated," she said. "This duty allows time 
to get to know her better." 

Because members relied on each other, they tended 
to act like a family, Folkerts said. 

"We have to go through the cleaning, fighting and 
getting on each other's nerves," she said. "In the end, it 
brings us all closer together."

helping feed the needy 

uses a"ii 


By Chris Dean 

For the residents of Ford Hall, helping needy families 
celehrate the holidays required a personal touch. 

Residents of the seventh floor decided to provide a 
Thanksgiving dinner for a needy family, but Sara Splichal, 
senior in life sciences, did not want to plan the event 
through normal organizations. 

"What discouraged me is that people don't have 
one-on-one contact with the people they help and that 
is something I wanted the residents to have," she said. 

Splichal said most organizations had too much red 
tape and did not provide the benefits that helping people 
hands-on did. 

"It gives a very different outlook on people's plights," 
she said. "People who can go to college and drive nice 
cars don't get to see the problems of others." 

To accomplish this hands-on help, Splichal contacted 
local churches and asked for a list of families who would 
benefit the most from the help. Once she had names, she 
asked tor volunteers from her floor. 

Residents were asked to donate money, help purchase 
the food and deliver it to the family. 

Floor members donated 50 cents to a dollar and 
raised $56. 

Splichal and three other residents from the floor 
delivered the Thanksgiving meal to a mother and her 
two children. 

"I was happy to do this because I like to help people 
and everybody, even the needy, should be thought of 
at Thanksgiving," Maggie Davis, freshman in nutrition 

and exercise science, said. "She (the mother) was really 
appreciative and I was glad that I could help." 

Helping the needy family also made the volunteers 

"Seeing how this family lived made me really 
thankful for everything I have. She 
didn't have much of anything," Sarah 
Meng, freshman in pre-medicine, said. 
"She was really proud ot her children. 
She showed us her pictures ot them. 
They were not in frames, but she had 
them taped to the walls." 

Davis said she was happy to help. 

"This kind of help is good because 
you get to see how your help is being 
used," she said. 

Splichal said she was pleased with 
the response trom the residents. 

"Projects like this bring out the 
best in people and I appreciate the 
generosity and thoughttulness that is so 
important," she said. "It's a real tribute 
to the girls on the floor." 

She also said she hoped more floors would try 
similar projects in the future. 

"I hope future staffs will see the rewards of this and 
continue the tradition," Splichal said. "We need to 
reach out to the community and not just make it a 
holiday thing." 

"I was happy to do 
this because I like to 
help people and every- 
body, even the needy, 
should be thought of at

pizza box spirit 

X X R „ I I K „ 


By J.J. Kuntz 

ootball season gave Goodnow Hall residents more 

than somewhere to go on Saturday afternoons — it 
gave them a way to use all their empty pizza boxes. 

Following a hall housekeeper's suggestion, residents 
supported the football team by decorating their lobby 

"One floor made a Powercat out of Pizza Shuttle 
boxes and then painted it purple and put it in their lobby 
window," Jenni Hoopes, sophomore in interior design, 
said. "I did it just because I wanted to. Everyone liked 
it and then the other floors caught on and it just became 
a big thing." 

The idea to decorate the lobby windows came from 
the second floor housekeeper, Glen Miller. 

"He brought it up, and I said 'Okay, I'll do it,' 
Hoopes said. "His dream was that he wanted a Powercat 
in everyone's window on the front of the building." 

With the decorations, Miller hoped to spread spirit 
for the upcoming football game against Kansas. 

"The idea was to have the main lobby windows 
with, 'Go Cats, Beat the Hawks,' and then have Powercats 
on every room window," Miller said. "But then the idea 
changed, which is better. Each floor had their own take 
on it, which was the original intent in the creative 

By the end of the football season almost every floor 
had participated in some form of the window paintings. 

"Our idea was just basically to get as many people as 
possible involved, kind of an ice breaker-type thing," 

Miller said. "Given the location, the front fcicing the big 
intersection, it seemed like a good idea." 

The residents were pleased with other students' 
reactions to the decorations. 

"I think it has brought a lot of attention to the hall 
and to the school especially," Cindy Martin, freshman in 
business administration, said. "We 
were even told that Pat Bosco, dean of 
student life, felt that it was good spirit 
for the school and for Goodnow Hall." 

The residents started a tradition 
that provided an opportunity for 
everyone to get involved, Hoopes 

"It has brought a lot of people 
together that would have just sat in 
their rooms and have done nothing," 
she said. "I think a lot of people have 
been coming out and helping to do 
stuff because they were interested and 
wanted to see what was going on." 

Miller said that creating an 
enjoyable living environment for the residents was the 
whole purpose. 

"The whole thing comes down to getting the 
residents to have an investment in the place, to make it 
a little more than a dorm," he said. "I'm really pleased 
with the way it turned out better than the original plan. 
The only thing now is, how do we follow it up?"

•year seniors 


convenience on campus 

Bv Lvnn Wu?erX 

By Lynn Wuger 

"It's easy living and I 
hardly have any responsi- 
bilities except for work 
and school." 

Cheap accommodations and easy living convinced 
three students to make a residence hall their home tor 
six years. 

Geo Eisele, Mike Flory and Jim Harris, all sixth-year 
seniors, found Haymaker Hall a refreshing, easy-going 
place to live. 

"It's not the greatest thing you want to tell somebody 
because it does have the undertone ot 'You still live in the 
dorms,' but it doesn't bother me," Eisele, senior in 
sociology, said. "It's easy living and I hardly have any 
responsibilities except for work and school." 

Besides only having to make one 
monthly payment, Eisele, Harris and 
Flory received a guaranteed living rate 
from the Department ot Housing and 
Dining Services. 

"Housing did give us a break our 
first year here," Eisele saieL "They gave 
us a guarantee not to increase our cost 
ot living." 

The idea of providing residents 
with a guaranteed rate was experimental 
for the university. 

"It was only for the year we moved 
m," Harris, senior in biology, said. "It was an experiment 
they tried for 1990 and I guess we were lucky to move 
in when we did." 

The seniors, none of whom had roommates, moved 
into remodeled suites in August. The suites were larger 
rooms with full- or half-bathroom options. 

"Living here is a great benefit considering I pay to 
have a room to myself while incoming freshman pay to 
have a room with a roommate," Flory, senior m 
management, said. "I wasn't going to live in the dorms 
again, but it's easier and more convenient than living off- 

Living in the suites had several benefits. 
"We're basically getting a bathroom for free," Eisele 
said. "Plus we get a ceiling tan and carpet. And about 
every two weeks, the housekeepers come in and clean 

Geo Eisele 
senior in sociology 

the bathrooms for us and sterilize them." 

Cheaper accommodations were not the only reasons 
the men remained in Haymaker. 

Harris and Eisele worked as hall receptionists. Harris 
also delivered and sorted hall mail. 

"That's the main reason I'm staying here," he said. "I 
have a job right down the hall." 

Residence halls also provided several cheaper, more 
convenient items not found off-campus. 

"Housing cooks for us. We don't have to do dishes 
and the housekeepers clean up a lot of things," Eisele said. 
"Plus, we have laundry facilities right here and they're 
cheaper than off-campus. I've heard a lot ot guys say it 
costs them anywhere from a $1 to $1 .50 to do one load 
of laundry. And here it's only 75 cents." 

Eisele said he perfered the residence halls to living 

"I've heard stories of landlords, roommates and 
neighbors," Eisele said. "And here, we just don't have 
those problems." 

Harris said he found off-campus living more of a 
hassle. He lived off-campus during the summer, but 
always returned to Haymaker when classes started. 

"When I lived off-campus during the summers, I 
never had a chance to get to know my neighbors," Harris 
said. "It's a lot friendlier here and you always have a chance 
to knock on someone's door and they will be home or 
leave your door open and someone will come in." 

The open and friendly atmosphere ot Haymaker 
helped Harris adjust to college life. 

"I like the hall because I consider it the place where 
I grew up," Harris said. "When I came here, I was so 
naive and gullible. I basically had to force myself to grow 
up. It's made me loyal to Haymaker." 

Choosing to stay in Haymaker for six years was an 
easy decision for Eisele, Harris and Flory. 

"I think it takes a certain mind set to want to live in 
the hall as long as we have," Harris said. "Some guys can't 
wait to get out but George, Mike and I are satisfied. We 
just don't want to leave."

Doyd Ferris, junior in electrical engineering, tries to 
fix Matt Love's, sophomore in apparel and textile 
marketing, computer. Love and Ferris lived in the 
newly remodeled suites in Marlatt Hall. The suites 
included private bathrooms. 

Kevin Trendel, senior in electrical engineering, 
studies in his Marlatt suite. Trendal, Ferris and 
Blake Thomas, sophomore in architectural 
engineering, lived in a three-person suite which 
contained a bedroom, living room and bathroom. 

I aking advantage of the extra space, Marlatt 
residents were able to fit more stuff into their 
rooms. Trendal, Ferris and Thomas filled their 
suite's main room with three desks, three bookcases, 
six chairs, a refrigerator and a beanbag. 

Besides the new suites, Marlatt had another new 
addition. Eighty-one women were housed on Marlatt's 
4th floor at the start of the semester because of lack 
of space in the female residence halls.

Marlatt Hall residents returned 
to their living environment 
in the fall to find out it had 
been invaded by 81 female students. 

"I think it was a first," David 
Yoder, hall director, said. "We just ran 
out of room in the traditional halls for 

Most of the females placed in the 
previously all-male dorm returned their 
contracts late, which caused the

the first day the 
dorms opened," 
Nichole Stuck, 
sophomore in journalism and mass 
communications, said. "But they told 
us before that we would be in temporary 

The Marlatt governing board had 
indicated they would like to remain an 
all-male dorm but while playing host 
to female students, they found out they 
did not mind the women's presence. 

"I didn't think that it created any 
problems," Kevin Trendel, senior in 
electrical engineering, said. "It was 
kind ol nice to have some women 

The women, who occupied all 
three corridors of the fourth floor, did 
not think the temporary housing 
situation was and problem, Stuck said. 

"I really didn't have any problems," 
she said. "There was a lot ot noise 
sometimes and with no staff (on our 
floors) there wasn't anyone to complain 

Because of the temporary situation, 
female staff was not hired for the female

wings, leaving the Marlatt staff to fill in. 

Between Aug. 25 and the end of 
September, the females began 
transferring in small groups to their 
permanent residence halls. 

' ' I was so surprised that they moved 
them so soon," Trendel said. "I figured 
they would have had more problems 
finding them a new place." 

Most of the temales moved into 
the first-available residence hall, but 
some chose to wait and live in their 
first-choice hall. 


"It took me less than a month to 
get a new housing arrangement," Julie 
Strickland, sophomore in agricultural 
journalism, said. "Mr. Yoder was really 
helpful getting me into Boyd." 

In addition to the change ot 
residents, Marlatt offered students a 
new living arrangement. Construction 
that began in June 1994 was completed 
in August, offering 23 apartment-style 
rooms with private bathrooms. 

"It makes for a different atmosphere 
because there was no public bathroom. 
The residents seemed to be behind 
closed doors," Yoder said. "There was 
much more privacy and not as much 

Along with the new suites came 
increased prices, ranging from $1,800 
to $2,020 for a semester with 20 meals. 

"With your own bathroom, you

making a mess," Trendel said. "I 
definitely feel that it is worth the extra

helping those in need 

o o re Hall 

gathers spare cents 

By Maria Sherrill 

Moore Hall's ninth floor resident assistant gobbled to 
proclaim victory in the hall's turkey drive. 

The week before Thanksgiving break, residents 
collected spare change and canned food to donate to the 
Flint Hills Breadbasket. The RA of the winning floor 
was required to go to dinner at Derby Food Center in a 
turkey costume. 

"I donated about 35 cents," Aletra Johnson, freshman 
in applied music, said. "I wanted Toni to be a turkey. She 
had to wear a little beak to dinner." 

After her floor won. Torn Henderson, ninth floor 
RA and senior in architecture, wore the turkey costume 
to Derby. She said she was surprised at how many ninth 
floor residents participated in the turkey drive. 

"It was something they wanted to do and they 
carried it out," Henderson said. "I think one reason is 
they wanted to show everyone that they could win." 

Residents raised $164.18 and collected 200 cans in 
one week. 

The turkey drive motivated residents to help those in 

"Motivation for collecting so much was mostly to 
help charity, although it was different for different 
individuals," Elissa Schell, head of the turkey drive 
committee and freshman in mechanical engineering, said. 

Tim Juarez, senior in business administration, gave 
money to help the ninth floor win. 

"I made an effort and donated some change," Juarez 
said. "I'd rather see the other floors lose." 

The floor also wanted to win the turkey drive tor the 

"I thought it was a great idea to raise money for 
charity," Gayle Goudy, ninth floor president and 
sophomore in fine arts, said. "I went door-to-door and 
I had people empty out their drawers full of pennies." 

Fifth floor was the runner-up and second floor 
placed third in the turkey drive. Competition between 
the floors was intense. 

"Second floor wins everything," Anna Tischer, 
ninth floor resident and sophomore in business 
administration, said. "I think we basically just wanted to 
show them up."

Grabbing her cousin's shirt, Jennifer Klingele, 
sophomore in family studies and human services, 
jokes around with David Klingele, freshman in 
mechanical engineering. 

Shawn Klingele, senior in civil engineering, hangs out 
by the Putnam Hall front desk. Shawn said because so 
many Klingeles had lived in Putnam, people often said 
the name should be changed to Klingele Hall. 

doing out for dinner, Paul Klingele, senior in computer 
engineering, and his cousin Shawn eat pizza in 
Manhattan Town Center.

Jennifer, Paul, Shawn and David pose for a group shot 
at the Putnam front desk. Putnam had housed 
Klingeles beginning in 1988. 




Since 1988, living in Putnam 
Hall had been a Klingele family 
When Paul Klingele, senior in 
computer engineering, moved into 
Putnam in 1992, he began the 
tradition of four family members 
living in the hall at once. 

"People always tease us, " Shawn 
Klingele, Paul's cousin and senior in 
civil engineering, said. " Some people 
say they ought to name this Klingele 

Klingele, sophomore in family studies 
and community service, lived on 
Putnam's first floor. 

"It's good having family here," 
she said. "After I moved here, I got to 
know my brothers and cousins as 
friends and it's fun having them 

Paul and his brother, David, 
freshman in mechanical engineering, 
lived together on the fourth floor. 
David said he had not felt pressure to 
attend K-State. 

"I thought it would be a nice 
touch if I went to K-State, but I didn't 
feel obligated to go," David said. 

Living in the same hall allowed 
family members to learn more about 
each other, Shawn said. 

"When I left for college my sister 
was in the eighth grade," he said. 
"That's how I remembered her. 
When she finally got up here, I got to 
know her better and thought 'Hey, 
she's changed and grown up a bit.' '" 

Shawn and Jennifer saw their 
cousins only a few times a year but 

by ashley schmidt 

that changed once they all lived in 
the same residence hall. 

"Sometimes we all get together 
to eat, go to a movie or just hang 
out," Shawn said. "I also see my 
cousins when we have fourth floor 

Although he had a hectic 
schedule, Paul said he always made 
time for family. 

"We watched all the football 
games that we could together and we 

kvjr^m** k» 


get together to celebrate birthdays," 
he said. 

No one was sure why living in 
Putnam had become a family practice, 
Jennifer said. 

"It's just one of those things that 
just happened and we don't know 
why," she said. "With my family, it's 
a joke-type thing." 

After Shawn graduated in 
December, only three Klingeles were 
left in the hall. 

"There's been tour here for so 
long, they feel like they're down in 
numbers," Shawn said. 

Since the Klingele tradition began 
with Maria Klingele, six family 
members had lived in Putnam. 

"Around my birthday one year, a 
female friend from high school came 
up to surprise me," Shawn said. "She 
knew I lived in Putnam Hall. I was 
gone at class, but my cousin Brenda 
was working the front desk and Maria 
was out on the porch. My friend said 
'No one can even come to the hall 
without running into a Klingele.'

ppearances could be deceiving, especially for students 
concerned about the connotations of a 24-hour quiet 



"People see the 24-hour quiet hall sign and just 
freak out," Paul Klingele, Putnam Hall governing board 
president and senior in computer engineering, said. 
"People just picture us sitting chained to our desks 
studying. That's not the case. We just know where to be 
loud and that's in the TV room in the basement. The 
basement is where we make all the noise." 

Although Putnam residents could get rowdy in the 
basement, they still observed hall rules. 

"The hall normally is quiet," Kari Evans, sophomore 
in pre-audiology, said. "We have a respect agreement 
that creates a 24-hour quiet time. You can be loud if you 
want but your neighbor can come over and request that 
you stop being loud." 

The policy was limiting but it also had advantages. 

"Sometimes it can be kind of frustrating being quiet 
all the time but when you want it to be quiet — like 
when you're studying lor a big test — it's really nice to 
have that option," Evans said. 

By the Royal Purple Staff 

Putnam became a 24-hour quiet hall about 10 years 
ago, Klingele said. 

Tamara Hosman, sophomore in psychology, said 
the policy was enforced more than in previous years. 

"You can be in your room with 
your TV on really low and they'll 
threaten to write you up," she said. 
"You just run into someone in the 
hallways and if the RA runs into you 
(talking), she'll tell you to go into your 

Hosman said although she saw a 
positive side to the 24-hour quiet hall, 
she often felt restricted by the policy. 

"I like it that you aren't disturbed 
by your neighbors but some of it is a little ridiculous," 
she said. "They take it too far." 

Stephanie Raymer, freshman in interior design, said 
the majority of residents on her floor did not like the 
policy. She advocated a more relaxed policy. 

"I'm not thinking (of a policy) exactly like the other 
dorms — maybe a 12-hour quiet policy," she said. 

"People see the 24- 
hour quiet hall sign and 
just freak out."

Incoming students competed to 
live in Smith Scholarship House. 
Cory Pfeifer, house recruitment 
chairman and junior in chemistry, 
said about 20 to 25 people applied 
per year and 10 to 15 were accepted 
based on various aspects of Tugh school 
life, including ACT score, leadership 
ability and how well the applicant 
worked with others. 

"We're not a bunch of nerds," 
Caudill said. "We don't just look at 
GPA, we look at extracurricular 



senior in biology, said. 

The application process began 
by the house obtaining a list of scholars 
from the University and sending 
information and applications to 
incoming students. After completing 
an application, a potential member 
interviewed with three or four 

About 35 members lived in the 

"The number goes up and down 
from year to year," he said. "We 
I j 1 have room for about 


activities and at overall character. I 
think everyone's image of us is that 
you have to have some kind of 
scholarship to get in." 

Members were required to 
maintain a 2.7 grade point average. 
To help Smith maintain the highest 
GPA among all living groups, as they 
had done in five of the past six 
semesters, the house had a scholarship 

The committee updated test files, 
enforced quiet hours and made sure 
members had time to study. 

"The president of the scholarship 
committee basically helps the house 
run smoother," Musick said. "If 
someone is having trouble in a class, 
he'll try to call the professor and 
maybe try to set up tutoring." 

The house was not connected 
with the University, so Smithies had 
to recruit all members themselves, 
Charles Caudill, house president and 

fg 40 people." 

Smith was like a 
fraternity in several ways — living 
quarters were the same and members 
had weekly meetings, Pfeifer said. 

"The meetings are basically to 
update us on problems and other 
things dealing with the house and to 
discuss them," Jason Musick, 
freshman in music education, said. 
"The only thing we do at all meetings 
is Quotable Quotes. That's where 
guys stand up and tell about funny 
things other people in the house 
have said." 

However, there were differences 
between Smith and a greek house. 
Smith did not have a membership fee 
or a pledge system and all members 
had full voting privileges. 

Musick said living in the house 
helped him study. 

"It gives me a chance to study 
without the interference of other 
stuff," he said. "My social life doesn't 
interfere with academics." 

340 -Smith- 

A Smith member bags leaves as part of his daily 
chores. Smith Scholarship House was a cooperative 
living environment in which the Smithies did six to 
seven hours of cooking and cleaning per week to lower 
their house payments. 

Members of Smith regularly practiced sports together 
to remain in top condition. This allowed them to stay 
in the top two teams in independent intramurals, as 
they had done for the past five years. One of the 
members' favorite games was Ultimate Frisbee.

to Smith for Christmas. The members decorated the 

house for the holidays to make it feel more like a

smurthwaite quilt 

m a d e o 1 1 i | 

personality patches 

By Maria Sherrill 

A needy family brought the 45 members of 
Smurthwaite House together. 

Members found the family through the Flint Hills 
Breadbasket and decided to make a quilt for the single 
mother and her three-year-old son as a Christmas gift. 

Each member contributed to the house's first-ever 
quilt by creating a square-foot quilt patch. 

"It should be a diverse quilt," Rabiha Abuzeineh, 
sophomore in elementary education, said. "It has 
everyone's personality in it." 

The patches represented the character of the different 
creators. Jill Hayhurst, house president and sophomore 
in speech pathology, made her patch from Tasmanian 
Devil material. 

"The material is perfect for our president. It really fits 
her personality," Becky Bohne, junior in interior 
architecture, said. "It's Jill in the morning." 

Other patches symbolized the friendship and family 
Smurthwaite provided. 

"It starts with friendship, the heart of everything," 
Leslie Schultz, freshman in chemical engineering, said, 
describing her patch. "Then the patches of green are for 
growth of friendship, the red is for love and blood of the 
family and at Smurthwaite we are like family." 

Karla Hightower, freshman in home economics education, 
found a patch design with the help of her mother. 

"I brought one of my mom's quilting books home 
and I liked a design," she said. "I liked helping others and 
I've always been big on community service." 

Others also included their families in the project. 

"During Thanksgiving break I brought the material 
home," Sacha Haukenberry, sophomore in psychology, 
said. "My mom and my grandmother helped (make the 
patch). It was like a family gathering." 

Because a patch was desired trom every member, not 
all 45 squares were quilted. 

"We wanted it to be something 
everyone could do," Abuzeineh said. 
"It didn't matter if they were sewn, 
painted or just a piece of material." 

The 45 patches came together 
through teamwork. 

"We are going to move all the 
furniture out of the front room," 
Bohne said. "We want a one-inch 
border separating each patch, seaming 
them together and then we are going 
to bind it." 

Members also donated toys and appliances to the 
needy family. 

"We have a large black coat and household appliances 
we found to give to the family," Abuzeineh said. "We 
want to get educational toys for the little boy." 

The members hoped to make the family's Christmas 
special, Bohne said. 

"The quilt will mean more to them because an entire 
house of girls care about them," Hightower said. "If I 
got something like this I would be thrilled." 

"The quilt will mean 
more to them because an 
entire house of girls care 
about them."

open for holidays 

A By l.l. Kuntz U 

With jobs, classes and basketball games continuing in 
spite of the holidays, residence hall students found 

places to stay during winter break — their own 

"This was an experimental process over the holidays," 
Chuck Werring, director of housing, said. "There were 
many factors leading to leaving the dorms open." 

Students not wanting to spend the entire break at 
home had the option of returning to school with a place 
to stay. 

"I stayed here because I have a job here in town," 
Jennifer Hildebrand, freshman in business administration, 
said. "It was really nice that I didn't have to pack up aU 
of my stuff to go stay in another dorm." 

In the past, students wanting to stay in the dorms 
over winter break were charged an extra cost and 
assigned rooms in Marlatt Hall. 

Leaving the halls open was a good service for many 
international and out-of-state students who were not 
returning home, Brian Hart, community assistant for 
Goodnow Hall and junior in microbiology, said. 

"I know that some people can't go home," 
Hildebrand, said. "It was much more convenient for 
them to stay in their dorm and not to have to look for 
another place to stay." 

Because Strong Complex residents were issued new 
room keys when they returned to school, officials 
tracked that 104 Strong Complex residents accessed 
their rooms over the break. 

Other numbers were not available because residents 
in remaining halls were not required to check in. 

Although all of the halls stayed open, only a few front 
desks remained functional during the vacation. 

"There were three desks open — Haymaker, Marlatt 
and Van Zile. There were seven people on duty all the 

By J.J. Kuntz 

time," Hart said. "Two sets of rovers went through all 
the buildings in four-hour shifts all the time. It -went 
pretty smooth." 

The staff found it beneficial being able to stay and 
work, Werring said. 

"We surprisingly had a lot of folks wanting to work 
over the break," he said. "We had on-campus and off- 
campus people that had worked for us in the past or who 
currently work during break." 

Residents were able to come and 
go as they pleased, Werring said. 

"We wanted to go to a 
basketball game and rearrange our 
room ahead of time, so we thought 
we'd come up early," Laura 
Williamson, freshman in biology, 

Keeping the halls open was 
convenient for the residents and kept 
past problems from reoccurring. 

"Normally at this time of the 
year with all of the staff gone, we get 
calls from students wanting to get in 
the dorms for ski equipment or 
forgotten wallets and checkbooks," 
Werring said. "With the dorms open this year people 
have been able to come get their stuff and leave without 
a problem." 

Many students had requested there be a 24-hour, 
12-month residence hall, Werring said, and that may be 
a future possibility. 

"The ideal is the student would check-in in the fall 
and have 24-hour access to the dorms until May. It 
would just like an apartment," Werring said. "We 
would really like to be to that point in the future." 

"It was much more 
convenient for them to 
stay in their dorm than to 
look for another place to

friendships grow in 

as rocks open doors 

A ByLynnWuger 

"If I'm having a prob- 
lem, I can go to any 
door and say 'Hey, I've 
got this problem, will 
you help me out. " 

Dustin Springer 
junior in special education 

Rocks found on campus became stepping stones to 
building hall unity. 

Residents of Van Zile Hall gathered rocks from 
campus to aid in getting to know each other. 

"Van Zile established the open-door policy," Dustin 
Springer, hall president and junior in special education, 
said. "We had rocks to prop the doors open. That way 
people could walk by, peek in and say 'How's it going?' 
"The doors automatically close and keeping them 
propped open helped a lot in getting to know everyone 
in the hall," he said. 

The policy, which worked well in the small hall, 
began last year with Emily 
Overman, senior in tood science 
and industry, and Kristen McGrath, 
junior in pre -medicine, Springer 

"Emily and Krista started the 
open door policy," he said. "It was 
generally used by older students so 
they could get to know each other. " 
The upperclassmen residence 
hall, was open to any student 
wanting to live there. Roth said. 

"I think they (housing) are 
trying to give everyone the 
opportunity to live in Van Zile 
because it's such a unique way ot 
living," she said. "This year we had 
a few freshmen, sophomores and transfer students." 

Besides having an open-door policy, residents also 
planned group activities to get acquainted with one

"We had about 35 people get together and order 
pizza and watch the game in the lobby," John Schmoll, 
junior in history, said. "It was one of the best programs 
we've done here, with the best turnout, considering 
we're such a small hall." 

Another event, which took place the weekend 
before Thanksgiving, was a group outing to Kansas City, 

"We went ice skating at Crown Center one weekend 
and went shopping on the Plaza," Kristen Roth, senior 
in human ecology, said. "It was one ot our biggest 
turnouts with about 20 residents attending." 

The hall's interaction paid off when they won the 
President's Award for Excellence, Springer said. 

"Van Zile residents are very proud of their hall," 
Roth said. "It's visible in their reactions and expectations. 
If they want something done, they make sure it gets 
done in a positive way for the hall." 

Springer said the positive attitude was not always 
present in other living situations. 

"I lived in Haymaker my freshman year and I hardly 
knew anyone who lived on my floor," Springer, said. "I 
know everyone living in Van Zile." 

Because the hall only housed 68 students, residents 
felt they were more like a family, Springer said. 

"We have great response from our residents. 
Everyone in the hall cares," he said. "It's almost like a 
family and that's something that was really rare in such 
a big hall like Haymaker." 

Talking through problems was also easier since 
residents were familiar with everyone living in the hall. 

"If I'm having a problem, I can go to any door and 
say 'Hey, I've got this problem, will you help me out,' " 
Springer said. "I'm sure there are those relationships and 
connections in the other halls but I think Van Zile is 
really unique."

floor activities decrease 


"The floor activi- 
ties make the floors 
closer and more like 
a family." 

Liz Miller 

sophomore in secondary 


West Hall residents did not get as many opportunities 
to meet girls who lived on other floors as they had 
in the past. 

Activities in West became more floor-based rather 
than concentrated on the entire hall. 

Jessika Kiser, hall president and senior 
in sociology, said a committee called 
Students Programming tor Students did 
the planning for all-hall activities but 
RAs were responsible tor floor activities. 
"Activities are more community- 
based," Kiser said. "Floors will do more 
just for the floors." 

Laura Williams, third floor president 
and sophomore in pre-physical therapy, 
planned events for her floor. 

"There really haven't been a whole 

lot of all-hall activities," she said. "Most 

of the activities we do are floor activities. I've taken my 

girls to lectures on campus and we've gone to things as 

a floor." 

Liz Miller, fifth floor president and sophomore in 
secondary education, said the floor-based activities 
brought residents closer. 

"I think it's better because you see the girls on your 
floor everyday," she said. "When there's an all-hall 
activity, there's 300 girls there and you don't know most 
of them andyou'rejust trying to meet as many as you can 
but you don't get real close to them. The floor activities 


make the floors closer and more like a family." 

Some residents did not favor reducing the number of 
all-hall activities, Williams said. 

"A lot of older residents who are used to having the 
big hall activities miss it," she said. "The new residents 
don't know how it used to be. They get excited about 
the floor activities." 

Thaine Bray, freshman in pre-veterinary medicine, 
said the floor-based activities were beneficial to residents. 

"I've gotten to know people on my floor but not 
many others," she said. "I liked the smaller number of 
people because you can get to know them better." 

Bray said she enjoyed decorating for holidays, taking 
study breaks and going out for ice cream with floor 

Floor presidents were responsible for most aspects 
of floor activities, Kiser said. 

"The floor presidents were each given a different 
Homecoming competition they had to organize," she 
said. "Each floor did different things to raise money for 
the family we adopted. The presidents had to think of 
what to do." 

Kiser said she thought West needed more all-hall 

"I saw more interaction between girls on different 
floors when we had all-halls," she said. "As hall president, 
I don't even know everyone in the hall and the only way 
to meet them would be to go door-to-door. I would like 
to have all-halls and floor activities to supplement."

rise in numbers due to 


Larger parties and placing in intramurals were results of 
more effective rushing by the Acacia fraternity. 

The fraternity initiated 12 to 15 pledges per year in 
the past but that number increased to 19, comprising a 
pledge class that made up almost half of the fraternity's 
50 members. 

"The house was down in numbers when we took 
office but this is helping our grades. We've gone to the 
top five in intramurals and we're having a lot of good 
functions," Matt Basler, junior in journalism and mass 
communications, said. "The wheel is turning and things 
are working the way they should." 

Tony Prettyman, rush chairman and sophomore in 
agriculture, attributed the large pledge class to having 
two rush chairmen. 

"Last year we started having two rush chairs instead 
ofjust one," he said. "That helps a lot because there's two 
guys to share the responsibility and we could visit twice 
as many people to recruit." 

Dylan Spencer, sophomore in fisheries and wildlife 
biology, and Basler served last year as co-rush chairmen. 
Basler said members became more involved in 

"Dylan and I started out by telling the guys that we 
wanted recommendations from them (for potential new 
members)," Basler said. "That was something new and 
it helped a lot." 

Prettyman said he, Basler, Spencer and Dan Knox, 
senior in industrial engineering, attended the first Acacia 

Leadership Academy at Indiana University Aug. 2-5 to 
learn how to rush effectively. 

"Our numbers were down and they tried to help 
us," Prettyman said. "They taught us good ways to rush, 
how to be leaders, things we need to do with our ritual 
and just basic fraternity things. I'm definitely glad I 

Having more members helped 
Acacia's reputation, Prettyman said. 

"The more people you have, the 
more recognition you get," he said. 
"More people on campus know we're a 
national fraternity when we get bigger. " 

Increasing membership diminished 
the financial strain on the fraternity, 
Prettyman said. 

"This will increase our funds and 
money always helps," he said. "We're 
able to throw bigger parties." 

Luke Meier, fraternity vice president and junior in 
pre-law, said the new members added life to the fraternity. 

"It's good to get young blood," he said. "They're 
excited and enthusiastic. They're willing to do some of 
the less glamorous work." 

Rush was a vital part of any greek house, Meier said. 

"When I was a freshman we didn't realize the 
importance of rush and we paid the price," he said. "We 
know how important it is now and we need to get that 
across to the younger guys. We have to pass it on." 

"We've gone to the 
top five in intramurals 
and we're having a lot 
of good functions."

large numbers help 

new Members excel 

Wednesday night visitors to the Alpha Chi Omega 
sorority were apt to see some new faces. 

"Quota for rush this year was 43 and we just had a 
good rush," Lynn Balthrop, vice president for education 
and junior in marketing, said. "We had a lot ol girls who 
wanted us as badly as we wanted them." 

Alpha Chi accepted 45 new pledges, more than any 
other sorority. The total number ot women rushing was 
461, down 16 from the previous year. 

"There were fewer girls going through rush this year 
than the year before," Balthrop said. "So getting this 
many pledges is just great." 

The newcomers made their mark early when Lisa 
Griffiths, freshman in psychology, was named Miss 
Pledge Games. The group also won the Spirit Award 
and the overall Pledge Games competition. 

Ashley Malone, house president and senior in

members learn more about each other . 

"I think it helped them out a lot. It made them want 
to get more involved in the greek system," she said. "For 
treshmen coming into this system, it can be really scary 
and things like the Pledge Games can help the girls meet 
people and have fun."

Theta Score for Charity flag football tournament and 
placing no lower than third at Tau Kappa Epsilon 
Powder Puff Tournament, Gamma Phi 
Beta/Beta Theta Pi Spiketacular and 
Alpha Gamma Rho/Pi Kappa Alpha 
Beach Bash. 

"It helps the new members see that 
philanthropies and raising money can 
be fun," Malone said. 

Because there were so many pledges, 
some had to share pledge moms. 

"Not everyone takes on a daughter, 
so a lot of us have the same pledge 
mom," Julie Heinzler, freshman m 
environmental design, said. "I'm a twin 
with another girl." 

Balthrop said the pledge class' 
closeness and size would help the 
sorority in the future. 

"Over the years there are obviously 
going to be a lot of people who transfer to another school 
or leave to get married, so it's great to have a bigger class 
to start with," Balthrop said. "That just means they'll 
end up with more people when they're seniors." 

"For freshmen coming 
into this system, it can 
be really scary and

alumnae come back to help 

celebrate anniversary 

Bv Sarah Garner & lonathan A. Yeoman sC/ 

By Sarah Garner & Jonathan A. Yeoman s' 

L or Alpha Delta Pi sorority members, renewed 
■*■ friendships and strengthened bonds of sisterhood 
marked the weekend of the football game against Kansas. 

The Alpha Eta chapter of AD Pi began their three-day 
80th anniversary celebration Oct. 27, the week alter the 
Oct. 15 founding anniversary. 

"We chose that weekend because it was right around 
the actual anniversaiy date," Gina Buster, alumni relations 
officer andjunior in journalism and mass communications, 
said. "It was more complicated to plan, but we were 
pleased with the turnout. The game encouraged more 
people to come up." 

Members were worried few alumnae would attend 
the anniversary celebration, Buster said, because it was 
the weekend after Homecoming. They thought many 
alumnae might return tor Homecoming festivities and 
not for the sorority function. 

Those concerns were forgotten when 175 alumnae 
attended the celebration. Including alumnae's spouses 
and families, about 250 people were present. 

"It was a bit of a problem with hotel accommodations," 
Amy Vaughan, sorority president and senior in marketing, 
said. "Women brought their husbands and children." 

Buster said she began trying to make hotel 
arrangements for alumnae in April but all Manhattan 
hotels were booked because of the football game. 

"We ended up having to book rooms in Junction 
City, but people were very understanding," Buster said. 
"I think they realized how hard it is to get rooms on game 

She said she was glad most alumnae brought their 
families or spouses, because the members had wanted the 
celebration to be a family event. 

On Friday night, alumnae registered at the ADPi 
house and were given house tours and refreshments. 

"We displayed some old, refurbished scrapbooks that 
the alumnae originally put together," Vaughan said. 
"We also had old composites for them to look at how 
they used to look when they were in school." 

Saturday's events began with a tailgate party prior to 
the football game. The house purchased 200 tickets for 

the game so alumnae and their families could attend, 
Vaughan said. 

The game was followed by a semi-formal at the 
Wareham Opera House. The K-State Concert Jazz 
Ensemble played at the party attended by alumnae, 
members and their dates. 

"It was kind of tough tor everyone to get up for the 
tailgate and go to the game and then get ready and go to 
the party," Vaughan said, "but a lot of people attended 
and it was very elegant. Eveiyone dressed up for the 

On Sunday, coffee and donuts were served at the 
house and the alumnae came over to catch up, Vaughan 

"It was a different crowd than our 
75th anniversary," Buster said. "There 
were more recent graduates and people 
who couldn't come to the 75th." 

She started planning for the event in 
the summer by sending fliers to all the 
alumnae she could locate. 

"One of the huge problems with the 
anniversary was trying to find all of the 
alumnae," Buster said. "They're spread 
out all over the country and I'm sure a 
lot of them never even received their 

The 80th anniversary made members freshman in pre-healtfl professions 
more conscious of the sorority's 
longevity, she said. 

"I think it increased our awareness of the history of 
the house and all that it's meant to other people," Buster 
said. "It helped (new members) get excited because they 
had heard about the anniversary since rush." 

The anniversary celebration was meaningful to all 
ADPis but especially to new members, Sara Flaherty, 
freshman in pre-health professions, said. 

"By seeing how close some of the alumnae were, it 
made me realize how important these girls will become 
to me," Flaherty said. "I'm not that close to eveiyone 
yet, but I know that I will be someday." 

"By seeing how close 
some of the alumnae 
were, it made me realize 
how important these 
girls will become to me."

lacking national support, AGR 

Rho Mates 

move in new 

By Heather Hollingsworth 

Sixty-seven little sisters lost their national support. 
Although Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity's national 
foundation stopped recognizing the fraternity's little 
sister program, the organization continued to grow. 

"I think it gives us a little more freedom," Julie 
Strickland, Alpha Gamma Rho Mate vice president and 
sophomore in agricultural journalism, said. "It's nice to 
know that our fraternity kept us even though they are 
not supported nationally." 

During the AGR's national convention in June, 
nationals voted to stop recognizing the Rho Mates but 
did not mandate official phasing out of the program, 
Brent Wiedeman, house president and senior in animal 
science, said. 

"A lot of the fraternities have done away with their 
little sister programs because of the sexist connotation it 
carried and the way they went about picking their little 
sises," Strickland said. 

Members tried to prepare for future conflicts with 
nationals over the continuation of the program, Scott 
Foote, sophomore in agricultural economics, said. 

"We want to be well prepared to say 'This is -why we 
should have the program,'" Foote said. "We want our 
reason (to continue the program) to outweigh their 

Despite the lack of national support, the number of 
Rho Mate applicants increased. In fall 1992 about 80 
women applied, however, that number rose to over 100 
in fall 1995, Wiedeman said. 

Ol the 100 women who applied, 67 Rho Mates 
were selected to equal the number of members in the 
fraternity. Pledges were paired with a big sister and 
upperclass fraternity members were paired with a little 

The old selection process required applicants to go 
from room to room where they were asked questions. 

In fall 1994 the AGR members 
changed the selection process, 
Wiedeman said. 

"They didn't think that they were 
getting the caliber and quality of girls 
that they wanted," Strickland said. 
"So they changed it to an interview 

Interested applicants filled out 
applications and the selection 
committee chose women to go 
through interviews. 

Once selected, the Rho Mates 
attended weekly meetings at the 
house and participated in activities with the members. 
They also helped with the fraternity's philanthropy. 

Little sisters found the lack of national support helped 
them better govern their organization, Strickland said. 

"It hasn't really hindered us. In fact, just this semester 
when we elected new officers we opted to add two 
additional officers," she said. "Speaking for K-State's 
little sises, we're not afraid to evolve." 

"We would definitely 
fight to keep our organi- 
zation. We would vote 
against it at the national

slide show helps 

remember the years 

On Oct. 21 , members of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity 
had more on their minds than the football game 
against Nebraska. They were cleaning up the house for 
their brothers. 

The ATOs sent more than 1,000 invitations to 
alumni lor their 75th anniversary. To celebrate the 
occasion, members organized a banquet at the Wareham 
Opera House, during which alumni and members 
watched a slide show about the chapter's 75 years. 

Christian Kelly, junior in pre-law, said the slide 
show was organizeci by two members and an alumnus 
who used pictures from old photo albums. 

"I had seen a lot of the pictures beiore in the 
scrapbooks but it was still neat," Kelly said. "You would 
see a picture of guys from the 70s and you would hear 
people laughing from one of the tables behind you and 
you would realize that was him years ago and his friends 
and wife were laughing about how they had looked back 

During the banquet, Brian Ruyle, national ATO 
president, awarded the house a True Merit Award, which 
recognized the chapter as one of the top 10 in the nation. 

"It was neat the president was here giving it to us and 
telling us that we're doing things right and we're one of 
the top chapters," Cary Majors, house president and 
senior in marketing, said. "Having that come from the 
national president made us feel really good and the 
alumni especially appreciated it." 

Ruyle also informed the members of the new ATO 
vision, which was 100 percent graduation and 100 
percent job placement. 

"He talked about 100 percent job placement of 
ATOs in the future," Ryan Noose, senior in marketing, 
said. "This would be done by networking through 
alums and getting contacts in the job market." 

The national council's plan was to connect all 

By Chris Dean 

chapters by computer and create a network of alumni 
who could help graduates find jobs. 

After the banquet there was a dance which both 
actives and alumni attended. 

"The dinner was really nice and formal but afterwards 
everyone just cut loose and had a great time," Kelly said. 
"I was surprised because a lot of the older guys stayed and 
were out there dancing and having a great time." 

Over 150 alumni attended the celebration, he said. 

"I was surprised by the turnout because I knew 
people were worried about it since it was a game 
weekend," Kelly said. "Turnout was 
great though, especially by older alumni. 
It was neat because ol the range ot 
alumni who came." 

In honor of their anniversary, the 
ATOs dedicated a granite marker which 
was placed outside their house. They 
also dedicated a plaque to the people 
■who had donated over $150,000 for 
house renovations. 

Another plaque was dedicated to 
Hollis House, the old chapter house, 
and placed in Throckmorton Hall which 
was the site of the house. 

During the celebration, the chapter inducted the 
first six people, all original chapter founders, into their 
new Hall of Honor. 

Throughout the weekend, the actives were also 
given the chance to talk with alumni about how the 
house was in the past. 

"It was great to see the alumni walk through the

new alpha xi housemother 

l l works to , i ii 

provide motivation 

A By Chad Moreland and J.J. Kuntz 

Searching for a new direction to her life, she turned to 
the Alpha Xi Delta sorority. 

Pauline Houtz took over as the Alpha Xi housemother 
at the beginning of the fall semester and had an immediate 
effect on the members. 

"Mom Houtz has brought more love and spirit to the 
sorority than you can possibly imagine," Holly Glover, 
junior in pre-health professions, said. "Because ol the 
extra stuff and activities she plans and she goes out of her 
way to get involved with us, she's given us a much more 
unified feeling." 

After the death of her mother and husband, Houtz 
said she needed a lifestyle change. 

"I heard about the housemom position through 
Stella Leiszler, the Gamma Phi Beta house mom," Houtz 
said. "Stella was always saying how much she enjoyed 
her job and made it sound so exciting." 

Alter interviewing with a lew houses, Houtz decided 
on Alpha Xi. 

"I went to the interview and everything with some 
of the alumni board and girls and they said to me, 'We 
want you,"' she said. "When they said 'We want you,' 
it made me feel so good and I decided to do it." 

Houtz said she worked to create a positive atmosphere 
for the members, especially during the holidays. 

"Halloween was really great. We all dressed up and 
I think everyone had fun," she said. "For Christmas I 
decorated most of the house and I also got Santa Claus 
to come by and visit the girls." 

Aside from her regular responsibilities of planning 
menus and attending sorority functions and meetings, 
Houtz said she worked hard at supporting and motivating 
the members. 

Carol Drew, freshman in speech pathology, said she 
saw Houtz at many Alpha Xi events. 

"I go to all their functions and try to reinforce 
whatever they're interested in," Houtz said. "Whether 
it be Glee Club, touch football or a jazz 
concert, I'll be there." 

She would often take members to 
the doctor or to class when they were 
late, trying to be available for them 
when they needed her, Houtz said. 

"Girls are always coming into my 
room and sitting and talking with me," 
she said. "I have an open door policy 
— day, night or anytime." 

The Alpha Xi's appreciated the 
effort Houtz put into the house. 

"She just goes out of her way to do 
things," Erin Shellhardt, junior in 
psychology, said. "One day she was out raking leaves at 
six in the morning." 

Houtz said adjusting to a house full of women was 
easy because she had experience working with people. 

"I love young people and it is challenging to see 
them growing," Houtz said. "I try to inspire them in any 
way I can. They are our future generation." 

"Mom Houtz has 
brought more love and 
spirit to the sorority 
than you can possibly

attending Sunday mass 

helpsiBeta Sig 

neips|Beta >igs | ■ p i , | 

remember their faith 

By Maria Sherrill 

Attending mass on Sunday morning was on the weekend 
agenda tor Beta Sigma Psi fraternity members. 
Beta Sig Sundays, which started when the chapter 
was established in 1951, became times for members to 
remember what their fraternity was about as they attended 
one of the four Lutheran churches in Manhattan. 

"Basically, the chaplain picks one Sunday a month 
and designates that as Beta Sig 
Sunday," David Fetters, house 
president and senior in elementary 
education, said. 

During the fall semester the 
Lutheran fraternity had seven Beta 
Sig Sundays. 

"Our attendance at church is 
close to 1 00 percent, which is better 
than it has ever been," David Lott, 
sophomore in agricultural 
journalism, said. "It is because of our chaplain. He took 
a step up and organized." 

Attendance was mandatory, Billy Wuggazer, house 
chaplain and senior in accounting, said but members 
never had attendance problems. 

"Usually 25 guys go to mass together. Some take 
their girlfriends," Brandon Livingston, senior in 
mechanical engineering, said. "We go in together and 
fill up to three or four rows. The priests really like that." 
The Beta Sigs' appearance showed the community 
the Lutheran fraternity members were serious about 

"The house has always 
been strong in spiritual- 
ity. That is what the 
house is founded on." 

David Fetters 
senior in elementary education 

their faith, Fetters said. 

Not only did Beta Sig Sundays make the fraternity 
look good, they benefited members, Livingston said. 

"As far as for the public, we look like a strong 
fraternity," he said. "Not only do we look that way, it 
really helps us to be a stronger fraternity and unites us." 

Wuggazer said he felt obligated to increase faith 
within the fraternity. 

"Since we are a Lutheran house it is really important 
that we remember why we are all here together," 
Wuggazer said. "It helps us unite as a house." 

The house carried on the traditional Lutheran beliefs 
not only by going to church but also by how they lived 
their daily lives. 

"The house has always been strong in spirituality. 
That is what the house is founded on," Fetters said. "But 
this year more people are involved and our house has 
become stronger because of the participation." 

Obligations other than religion did not stop the Beta 
Sigs from prioritizing their fraternity brothers and religion 

"We all come from a common bond," Livingston 
said. "Religion adds a really nice touch to the house." 

David Beikmann, freshman in agronomy, said he 
and other freshmen found advantages in the Lutheran 

"I think I have grown stronger in faith," he said. 
"Young students go to college and their faith may lessen 
but I hope to continue growing as I get older."

There was a new 

system for the 

campout, which 

informed campers 

ahead of time when 

the flag would go up 

and the camping 

would begin. The 

change made it 

easier for campers 

because they did 

not have to begin 

camping days ahead 

of time. To stay in 

the running for 

tickets once the 

campout began, 

each group kept a

people at their

days reunites 


Beta Theta Pi alumni went back in time, reminiscing 
their college years with the men who now inhabited 
their old rooms. 

The fraternity hosted Beta Days, an event the chapter 
sponsored every two years, during the weekend ol the 
football game against Kansas. 

Members distributed more than 1 ,000 invitations to 
encourage alumni to attend the event that involved the 
gathering of past and present Betas. 

"The game was hyped up and everyone was in a 
good mood," Kye Hittle, sophomore in architectural 
engineering, said. "A total of 175 attended." 

Alumni trom all over the nation made it to the 
celebration and a variety ot age groups were involved. 

"One entire pledge class attended Beta Days," Sean 
Simms, house president and senior in landscape 
architecture, said. "The 1970 pledge class and their 
families hung out in the dining room and talked about 
old times Friday night." 

Wade Baker, alumni chairman and junior in 
accounting, organized the celebration. He said this was 
the first year for a formal banquet following the football 

S h e r r i I 


"Beta days was successful this year. The formal was 
a neat experience to hear their (the alumni) stories," 
Baker said. "I guess you could say we got to visit with 
the roots of our fraternity." 

On the agenda for the Beta Days 
banquet was guest speaker John J. 
Rhodes, fraternity and K-State alumnus, 
who added a surprise to the event. 

"In his speech he praised our 
housemother for winning the 
housemother of the year," Baker said. 
"He also spoke about the importance ot 
the fraternity in his lite." 

Rhodes then donated his Oxford 
Cup to the Betas, which he was awarded 
as a lifetime achievement award from 
the national chapter. 

"The award is only presented to top 
Betas," Hittle said. "He (Rhodes) said 
he got so much out ot being in the fraternity that he 
wanted to give something back to the house." 

"I was interested in 
Mr. Rhodes, not just 
because of his success in 
life but to see how our 
fraternity affected them 
(alumni) later in life."

"It was a sisterhood

sisterhood retreat teaches 

1 Chi a s to 

take it 

Members ot the Chi Omega sorority took it personally 
tor more than two hours. 

Chi O nationals implemented Take It Personally, a 
seminar designed to recognize the important decisions 
college students face daily, Jodi Bacon, senior in pre- 
physical therapy, said. 

Because the seminar was a 
mandatory activity, all 136 members 
attended the Oct. 22 event in the K- 
State Student Union Little Theatre. 
Members were supplied with 
workbooks, which correlated with 
a video about the program. 

The program dealt with topics 
including rape, hazing and drinking. 
Bacon said. 

"The videos gave us scenarios 
and how to prevent them," she said. 
"The seminar lasted two and a half 
hours, so we had pizza and pop. It 
was like our own movie theater with treats." 

The Chi Os divided into groups after the video to 
complete the workbooks. 

"The program gave the girls in the house a chance to 

say 'Hey, that happened to me' or 'Yeah, that could 

happen to me,' " Bacon said. "It really opened our eyes." 

Take It Personally made the Chi Os aware of the 

dangers surrounding them, she said. 

"Most ot the girls in the house are from bigger towns. 

By Amy Smith 

To us, Manhattan is small and sate, but in reality no town 
is really safe," Bacon said. "Unless you're taking the 
necessary steps, no place is safe." 

The video made the members aware ot what was 
legally considered hazing. 

"In the video, it showed different perspectives that 
we had never even thought of. Even teasing is considered 
hazing," Bacon said. "Even if a person is just joking 
around, someone who doesn't know them might take 
them seriously." 

Kristen Laughlin, senior in elementary education, 
said the video was prepared by the Chi O National 
Governing Council and risk management teams. 

"A Chi O chapter in Texas acted out the different 
scenarios on the tape," she said. "It's not like a home 
video, though, it's real professional." 

The Take It Personally seminar also addressed safety 
precautions concerning the houses. 

The video included fire codes, like not having too 
many appliances plugged in at once or having things 
cluttering the hallway. Angle Pauly, freshman in business 
administration, said. 

"It surprised me how strict everything is," Pauly 
said. "Next year when I live in the house I'm going to 
have to remember all that." 

Take It Personally provided togetherness for the Chi 
O sisters, Bacon said. 

"It was a sisterhood retreat as well as an awareness 
retreat," she said. " It brought everyone together."

royal towers offer

place to call home 

Invading the Royal Towers apartments, Delta Chi 
fraternity members lived together for the first time. 

"We started from nothing. We colonized. We started 
building up numbers and then we started doing things like 
a lot of other houses did. We started doing functions with 
other groups," Aaron Otto, housing chairman and junior 
in political science, said. "Each year we just go a little bit 
further and become more established and more involved. " 

However, since the fraternity's re-colonization in 
1992, Delta Chi members sought to add another brick 
to their foundation — a place to call home. 

"We concluded that we can't be successful without 
being together," Jon Daugharthy, house president and 
junior in pre-law, said. 

Finding a reasonably priced apartment complex 
near campus that could house 31 of the fraternity's 63 
members was a major concern, Otto said. 

"We found out Royal Towers was one of the better 
apartments to live in because it was a big, big apartment 
complex," he said. 

Having half of the Delta Chis in Royal Towers made 
members feel more united, Daugharthy said. 

"Getting at least half of us together has increased 
unity and brotherhood and communication," he said. 
"It has given us something more to work with because 
it's showing us what we have to work with. It's giving 
us a taste of what it will be like (when we get a house)." 

Members no longer had use the phone to remind 
each other of games and functions, Otto said. 

By Heather Hollingsworth 

"It there is an event happening that afternoon we can 
knock on the doors. It's a big change talking in person 
instead of through cellular fibers," Otto said. "If you 
have to make phone calls it's a lot easier for them to say, 
'I've got to study, I've got to do whatever.' 

Although only two new members 
lived in the complex, the centralized 
meeting place helped both new members 
and actives stay in touch, Otto said. 

"It (living in the apartment complex) 
gives us the opportunity to bring new 
members in," Trice Alford, senior in 
speech, said. "It's probably the best pledge 
class we have had because they have had 
the opportunity to experience more 
about the fraternity in the first semester. " 

Learning to live with a large group 
was a challenge tor the Delta Chis 
unfamiliar with the experience. 

"There are obviously drawbacks and a lot of sacrifices 
you make — just the normal roommate friction," Otto 
said. "Everyone gets tired of everybody, but the greater 
good, when you step back and look at it, is that 
everybody is together and everybody is talking." 

Despite the togetherness Royal Towers provided, 
members refused to stop building. 

"Everything is still like wet clay. You're molding the 
future," Otto said. "Gradually it will harden into a 
foundation, but you still have to build on it." 

"We started building 
up numbers and we 
started doing things like 
a lot of other houses

change in philanthropy leads 

arrest for a reason 

By Sarah Kallenbach 

Bailing out children with cancer was the concern of 
the Delta Delta Delta sorority's Jail-n-Bail. 

The sorority returned to the philanthropy Oct. 6 
after three years of the Deltapalooza band competition. 
It was the decision of the nationals to make the change 
from Jail-n-Bail to Deltapalooza in 1992. 

"They wanted us to try new things. Other Tri-Delt 
chapters had tried Deltapalooza and it was successful," 
Amy Voorhes, president of the sorority and senior in lite 
sciences, said. "We tried it and it just didn't work." 

The cost and difficulty of finding bands lor the 
competitions made it difficult for Deltapalooza to be 

"Deltapalooza was tough because of the bands and 
equipment," Alison Downard, junior in pre-dentistry, 
said. "With Jail-n-Bail there is not much overhead." 

Because the sorority had not done Jail-n-Bail for 
three years, Downard said, the planning was difficult. 

"It was tough for me because I wasn't here the last 
time we did it," she said. "Now that it is established it 
will be easier to put it on." 

She began making preparations in spring 1995 and 
by September her biggest concerns were t-shirt sales and 
entry forms. 

Two sororities and 1 8 fraternities participated in the 
philanthropy, which was at Rusty's Last Chance. The 

Tn-Delts raised about $2,000 for the Children's Cancer 

Each of the participating houses nominated a person 
to be imprisoned. To be released, or 
bailed out, a house had members go to 
Last Chance and sign a banner. 

While the main event was going 
on, other activities took place. Games 
like Simon Says, darts, pool and 
basketball entertained the packed bar. 

"Each house got points tor 
participating in the games and they also 
bought a lot of food," Downard said. 

Bartenders handed out tickets to 
those who purchased food and the Tri- 
Delts added the tickets to points received 
through the games to determine the 
winner of the competition. 

The Delta Tau Delta fraternity won 
the traveling trophy for the most points. 

Reaction to the event was positive 
from both the Tri-Delts and the participants. 

"Everyone was really excited. All the other houses 
came together," Jamie VanHecke, senior in speech 
pathology, said. "It's really good for the Greek 

"They wanted us to 
try new things. Other 
Tri-Delt chapters had 
tried Deltapalooza and it 
was successful. We tried 
it and it just didn't

It took one week in Indianapolis to make leaders of 
two Delta Sigma Phi fraternity members. 

"Every year our national sponsors a College of 
Engineered Leadership conference," Dan Ott, fraternity 
president and senior in civil engineering, said. "It's a 
week-long retreat people from around the country 

From about 200 applicants, Ott and Alex Dean, 
junior in biology, were chosen through a selection 
process that included an application and an essay. 

About 50 people attended the conference July 27- 
31, which was informally structured to provide 
participants with opportunities to meet other people. 

"There is a lot of interaction. They broke us up into 
five or six groups," Ott said. "Each group had one 
facilitator. He would keep us on track." 

Several Delta Sig alumni were asked to speak to the 
group, including Pat Boseo, K-State alumni and dean of 
student life. 

"I dealt with the challenges leaders will face in the 
21st century and techniques they can use to meet these 
challenges," Bosco said. 

The College of Engineered Leadership's goal was 
not necessarily to serve the fraternity, Dean said, but to 
develop leadership skills that applied to the job market 
and members' daily lives. 

"I think it takes commitment to a substantive problem, 

strong communication skills and a genuine interest in 
people other than yourself (to be a successful leader)," 
Bosco said. "I think the retreat provided the opportunity 
for them to develop their own leader skills and share 
common problems and situations found in fraternities." 

The lessons taught at the conference were seen in the 
way the chapter was run, Dean said. 

"You can see how the people who 
went took what they learned to take the 
house in a positive direction," he said. 

To involve alumni in the chapter, 
Dean said he used what he learned at 
the conference. 

"When I returned I became the 
alumni relations person," he said. "I 
have been able to reach the alums better 
and to plan an Alumni Day." 

The retreat not only helped the 
house but also the individuals. 

"I was better able to grasp my own 
leadership style," Dean said, "not only how I perceive 
myself, but how others perceive me." 

The retreat focused on four elements that a leader 
should possess — motivation, engineering one's heart, 
empowerment and delegating authority. 

"They all fit together and if you possess all of those 
qualities you are probably a successful leader," Ott said. 

"You can see how the 
people who went took 
what they learned to 
take the house in a 
positive direction."

first-year members of 

Delta Sigma"! Theta 

oh their own 

By Chris Dean 

The members of Delta Sigma Theta sorority had three 
common bonds. 

All nine women were first-year members who wanted 
to gain leadership skills and help the community. 

"All the (members from last year) had graduated and we 
were left with the task of figuring things out ourselves, 
which was really hard at first," Angela Brown, house 
president and junior in secondary education, said. 

Although the older members were gone, the new 
members did not feel abandoned by them. 

"Before they left, the last group told us everything we 
had to know," Kiki Lovelace, junior in human development 
and family studies, said. "It took us time to get everything 
together without them but I think that is pretty normal." 

Kimberly McKamie, senior in elementary education, 
agreed the members were not lacking guidance. 

"Our adviser helps us a lot and we are still in contact 
with older members," she said. 

Jennifer Noisette, senior in management information 
systems, said having all new members actually helped the 

"It's pretty good because we all have fresh, new ideas," 
she said. 

The members' limited experience did not keep them 
from winning two step shows. 

The sorority won the Alpha Kappa Alpha's Neak Frasty 
step show Nov. 4 and the Black Expo step show, Steppin' 
into the '90s, in Kansas City Dec. 4. Brown said winning 
the events increased the self-esteem of the young sorority 


"Of course it was a boost," she said. "Doing the job 
and knowing that you did it well is always a boost." 

Brown said she hoped Delta Sigma Theta's 
achievements at the step show would be noticed by 
other sororities. 

"I would hope that it would not 
really grab the other sororities' 
attention but make them realize that 
it can be done, especially since we are 
all new members," she said. 

Other achievements included 
sponsoring a clothing drive for the 
women's shelter, helping with 
Habitat for Humanity and 
volunteering at a daycare center, 
Brown said. 

The reason tor the volunteer 
projects was because Delta Sigma Theta was a community 
service-based sorority and not a social sorority, Lovelace 

"Basically I think all sororities are trying to help out 
the community," she said. "The only difference is that 
we don't live together." 

The group did not consider themselves any different 
than the other sororities on campus, Noisette said. 

"We party just like the rest of them," she said. 
"There are just times when we have to get down to 

"It's (having all new 
members) pretty good 
because we all have fresh, 
new ideas."

Christmas party allows 

DUs to 

give the gift of spirit 

W \J Rv Sa rah AKallenhar h 

By Sarah -*- Kallenbach 

Delta Upsilon fraternity went to the Villages tor 

The fraternity threw a party Dec. 1 at the Villages, a 
home for abused children. All of the 40 children who 
lived in the home attended the Christmas party. 

"Everyone in the house had been paired up with a 
kid and they would get a present they wanted," Ryan 
Bridges, senior in marketing, said. "We had a party 
where we exchanged gilts." 

The party provided the DUs an opportunity to help 

"We raise money for it all year long and we like to 
go up there to interact with the kids," Quentin Hurst, 
fraternity president and senior in finance, said. 

About 40 members of the fraternity drove to Topeka 
to spend time at the Villages. 

"I think we were more excited about doing it for 
them than they were," David Fritchen, junior in 
journalism and mass communications, said. 

The party provided excitement not only for the 
fraternity members but also for the children. 

"There are a lot of sad cases and the Christmas party 

gave us a chance to give the kids something to look 
forward to," Fritchen said. 

Hurst said the Villages creates a home for children. 

"They have a place in Topeka and 
also in Lawrence," Hurst said. "It is 
basically for kids who have been abused. " 

The DUs became involved with 
the program because one of their 
honorary members founded the 

"The good thing about it is that we 
don't gain anything," Fritchen said. "It 
is all about giving and being able to 
spend time with the kids and making a 

The fraternity members tried to 
make it to Topeka at least once a year to 
spend time with the children. 

"It is giving time back to them and 
sharing with them," Bridges said. "It is 
important that they know there are people who are out 
there praying and pulling tor them." 

"There are a lot of 
sad cases and the Christ- 
mas party gave us a 
chance to give the kids 
something to look for- 
ward to."

commitment to FFA has 


i r a r m m o u s,e| -j 

reaping the rewards 

X V/ By Eric B e i k m a n n 

Years of being in Future Farmers of America paid off 
tor six FarmHouse fraternity members when they 
received national recognition. 

"A large number of our house members have been 
or are currently in FFA," Ben Janssen, freshman in 
biological and agricultural engineering, said. "I would 
say around 40 percent or more have been involved." 

Janssen, Gabe Eckert, Sheldon Eisele, Brad 
Montgomery, Derek Roth and Chris Stockbrand found 
themselves standing out among the 35,000 participants 
attending the 68th National FFA Convention Nov. 8- 
1 1 in Kansas City. 

"FFA is an organization which builds character and 
leadership in young adults," Janssen said. "Kids are 
learning respect for themselves and their communities." 

He received a National FFA Horse Proficiency 
Award and won a trip to Europe. 

"I've been in FFA since I was about 13, "Janssen said. 
"My award was based on five years of records I kept, 
which showed my growth ofknowledge and involvement 
in taking care of six horses." 

Eisele, freshman in biological and agricultural 

engineering, was a member of the national champion 
team in agricultural mechanics career development. 

Montgomery, freshman in agricultural economics, 
and Eckert, freshman in agricultural journalism, served as 
delegates and committee members at the convention 
because of their positions as Kansas FFA 

Roth, sophomore in biological and 
agricultural engineering, was an 
American FFA Degree Recipient and a 
Forage Production Proficiency Award 
finalist. Stockebrand, sophomore in 
agriculture, also received the American 
FFA Degree, which was awarded to 
three percent of FFA members per year. 

He said it was not too unusual for six FarmHouse 
members to receive national recognition in the same year. 

"FarmHouse has a tradition of leadership and 
involvement in many areas," Stockebrand said. "FFA 
has been a great source of growth for many of our 
members but those not involved haven't missed out on 
leadership opportunities within the house or on campus." 

"The convention really 
energized all those in

- all sounds ol their 
became familiar to 

Pounding, sanding and sawing 
ongoing house renovations - 
members of Fiji fraternity. 

Remodeling, on the fraternity's house begun in 
1994, was to continue throughout the school year and 
into 1997. 

"There are a lot of things we have to do yet," Adam 
Gaines, senior in management, said. "In the future there 
is a possibility for an additional wing." 

Minor renovations were made during the fall, such 
as carpeting in the entry way and living room, building 
additional walls for a television area, installing new 
lighting and relinishing woodwork around doors and 

The Fiji's computer system was connected to the 
campus network, desk space was created and sectioned- 
off areas were added to oiler privacy in the library, Tige 
Soderberg, junior in feed science management, said. 

"It's hard to see the changes unless you knew what 
it was like before," Gaines said. "It was like an institution 
and now it's more like a home." 

After leasing the house on Hunting Avenue in 1 993, 

the fraternity made the decision last spring to purchase 
it and make changes to the structure. 

Most renovations were done by the construction 
company, but members also had their share of work. 

"To start off, at the beginning ol the 
semester during our work week, we put 
a lot of time into painting the exterior," 
Jason Schamberger, senior in 
accounting, said. "The construction 
company is mainly working on the 
structural changes." 

Money for the renovations, were 
expected to total $600,000 and came 
from house payments and Fiji nationals. 

Soderberg said although the 
remodeling process was slow, members were eager to 
see what the results would do for the house. 

"The structure was pretty bad and the house was 
very plain and bare (before renovations)," he said. "We 
wanted to make the house look more prestigious and I 
think it is something that will help with us with 

"It was like an institu- 
tion and now it's more 
a home."

rushees tip tables as 


house gets new look 

Vb/ B v A m v S m i t 

Rushees were not the only ones getting a first look at 
the remodeled Gamma Phi Beta sorority house. 

Members saw the renovations for the first time 
when they returned for rush week. The renovations 
were done during the summer and were barely finished 
for rush. 

Gamma Phi alumna Susie Baxter, an interior designer 
with Design Details, did the designs, Kelley Bennett, 
junior in secondary education, said. 

"She came to a chapter meeting and let us decide 
between a couple samples, so we had a little bit of say in 
the decision making and decorating," Bennett said. 

Renovations were done on the first floor of the 
house, on eight bedrooms and one upstairs bathroom. 

"The dining room and living rooms look a lot 
classier and the new wooden floor looks more formal," 
Tammy Hoobler, house president and senior in 
agricultural business, said. "The gray and mauve was 
depressing and drab. The new color scheme gave our 
house new life." 

Most members liked the changes, Melissa Clark, 
junior in horticulture, said. 

"It was okay before the renovations. Some of the 
furniture looked old, but it really wasn't that bad," Bennett 
said. "In contrast to the old, it looks a lot better now." 

The renovations cost about $100,000, Baxter said. 
Funding for the remodeling was mostly provided by 
alumnae donations and the house corporation board. 

By Amy Smith 

"It was kind of nerve racking trying to get it done 
before rush," Bennett said. "When we came up this 
summer to get ready for rush, there was no finished 
floor, just concrete. It was scary because we couldn't 
visualize what it would look like done." 

Furniture deliveries were also delayed, 
some not arriving in time for rush. 

A new glass-top table had been 
purchased but only the base of the table 
had been delivered by the first day of rush 
activities, Bennett said. A glass top from 
another table was used but was not secured 
to the new table base. 

Everyone was concerned with 
keeping away from that table, afraid the 
glass would be tipped over by a rushee, 
Hoobler said. 

"When you're going through rush, you're so nervous 
you're going to do something wrong," Bennett said. "A 
rushee would be so embarrassed when they'd lean on it 
wrong and make the entire glass top flip up. All you 
could hear was voices talking and all ot the sudden it 
sounded like someone dropped bricks." 

The renovations were worth the inconveniences, 
Bennett said. 

"It revitalized the enthusiasm and now everybody 
wants to live in, including seniors wanting to get back 
in," Hoobler said. 

"The gray and mauve 
was depressing and drab. 
The new color scheme 
gave our house new life."

closeness among members in 


grows in ford annex 

V/ Rv ^arah Kallpnhar 

To find the Kappa Alpha Theta annex — go straight 
up the elevator to the eighth floor. 

For six members of the sorority, Ford Hall became 
an extension ot the main house. 

Jennifer Wolt, sophomore in secondary education, 
decided she wanted to be a resident assistant instead of 
moving into the house. 

"I applied through the basic interview process (for 
an RA) because they didn't think they would have 
enough room (in the house) for all of the sophomore 
class," Wolf said. 

Only two members of the class did not get to move 
into the house, but Wolf said her decision to stay in the 
dorms was a relief to her and her family. 

"It was going to be a big financial strain for my 
parents," she said. "They are paying for my college. This 
way I get my room and board." 

The money Wolfs family saved was just one 
advantage to the arrangement. 

"It lets me remain close to the house," Wolf said. 
"This way I get to live close to the new members of the 

Judy Bloch, freshman in engineering, said living on 
the same floor as Wolf helped the new members. 

"She tries to tell us things that are going on in the 
house," Bloch said. "She tries to keep us informed." 

Living with the new members made it easy for Wolf 
to build strong relationships with them. 

"We are closer than I am with the rest of the (pledge) 

By Sarah Kallenbach 

class," Wolf said. "I see a lot ot them because we live 

Closeness developed between Wolf and the new 
members, but also among the new members. 

"You get to know them really well," Bloch said. 
"Sometimes there are different activities for pledges for 
actives and it is nice to have the pledges here." 

Jolynn Rycken, freshman in 
secondary education, said the 
advantages of having Wolf as their 
RA were notjust tor them personally, 
but also for the house. 

"I think it is good for her because 
she couldn't afford it. Being a resident 
assistant she gets to know other people 
in the residence halls," she said. "I 
think that it would reflect good on 
any house." 

By living in Ford, Wolf could 
tell others about sorority lite. 

"Being an active member, it 
(living in the residence hall) allows 
me to really push the Greek life and 
I get to see another perspective," she said. 

Although Wolf did not regret her decision to be an 
RA, she said she missed some things by not moving into 
the house. 

"I think I missed a lot," she said. "Living in a house 
with 70 girls you are bound to become close." 

"Being an active mem- 
ber, it (living in the 
residence hall) allows me 
to really push greek life 
and I get to see another

Kappa Alpha Theta- i/7 



Nine sisters and a closer 
bond — all in one annex. 
Members of the Kappa 
Kappa Gamma sorority's 1993 pledge 
class got to know each other better 
living together m the annex, which 
the house had owned since 1980. 

Usually seniors lived in the annex, 
which was next door to the sorority 
house, but during the tall semester 
nine juniors were roommates. 

"We designated one night a week 
that we would all go out to eat dinner 


and do something together," Susie 
Ross, junior in lite sciences, said. 
"We were like our own little group." 

Living in the annex cost the same 
as living in the sorority house and it 
helped members make the move 
from living in the sorority house to 
having their own place. 

"Living in the annex was great 
because before actually moving out 
on their own, it was like a transition," 
Shawna Smith, junior in pre- 
optometry, said. "They can still eat at 
the house or they could cook on 
their own." 

Another advantage to living in 
the annex was getting to know the 
other eight roommates better than it 
living in the house, Becky Hayden, 
junior in hotel and restaurant 
management, said. 

"We were always sitting in the 
kitchen and talking tor hours," Susie 
Viterise, junior in special education, 

by marl a sh e rrill 

said. "We would rent movies together 
and just veg out when we didn't 
want to go out." 

Atter living in the annex, 
members decided they liked the 

"We all decided that we want a 
house like that when we grow up," 
Viterise said. "It is a two-story house 
that has hardwood floors, a cute 
kitchen and a dining room." 

The annex had the same rules as 
the house, but they were not as 
monitored, Ross 

Rules, such as 
quiet hours, were not strictly enforced 
in the annex, Julie Schwieterman, 
senior in dietetics, said. 

"At the annex it we are all talking 
nobody cares," she said. 

To guarantee members would 
not become detached from the 
sorority house, they could only live 
in the annex one semester. 

"I think we only get to live in the 
annex for one semester because they 
don't want us away from the house," 
Hayden said. "They don't want us to 
miss out on things happening over 

Although annex dwellers missed 
out on living in the sorority house, 
they found ways to have tun. 

"We were all studying tor finals 
and at one o'clock we got in a tood 
fight with the leftovers in our 
retngerator," Ross said. "We decided 
we had to clean the house the next 

Lorie Gale, junior in hotel and restaurant management, 
does her laundry in the basement of the annex. The nine 
women lived in the annex, which was located next door 
to the main house. 

I aking her turn doing the dishes, Susie Ross, junior in 
life sciences, cleans a cup. Although the residents of the 
Kappa annex said they enjoyed being able to cook for 
themselves, it also meant cleaning for themselves. 

In the room she shared with Gale and other roommates, 
Tara Bohn, junior in architectural engineering, spends 
her time studying. The annex residents said they liked 
the rooms' bigger closets and larger rooms. 

Blowing a bubble, Mariah Tanner, junior in family 
studies and human services, watches as Bohn does her 
homework. Because of the small number of people in the 
annex, residents said the house became more of a home 
for them.

part-time student takes on 

I i Kappa Sigs, 


Whether shopping at Wal-Mart or cheering on Kappa 
Sigma fraternity members at sporting events, the 
27-year-old enjoyed playing her motherly role. 

In her first year at the Kappa Sig house, Dana Lynne 
Hinshaw was the youngest housemother on campus. 

"It's definitely not a job, it's a lifestyle," she said. "It 
encompasses my whole life. When I'm out at Wal-Mart, 
I am always thinking what I can get for the house. You 
don't do that with a job." 

A part-time accountant at Yanning and Associates 
in Manhattan, Hinshaw was also enrolled in nine credit 
hours. She said she planned to spend the next two years 
at the house while she worked toward her master's 
degree in family studies and human services. 

Brian Dowling, freshman in business administration, 
liked having a housemother who was attending college. 

"She's in college now and she knows the college 
experience," he said. "She can help us out because she 
knows what is going on now." 

Hinshaw said she loved her role at the house because 
each day brought a new experience. 

"Somebody may come in and want some ice for an 
injury or another guy might come in at midnight to talk 
to me about changing his major," she said. "My door is 
always open." 

It took some adjusting to become a housemother, 
Hinshaw said. 

"Every time I heard them call me 'Mom' it was so 
weird," she said. "Now that I am so used to the role, it 

of mom 

By the Royal Purple Staff 

is weird if I hear the name Dana." 

Hinshaw was often found on the sidelines at sporting 
events cheering lor the members. 

"She was real good about going to our games," 
Brent Burklund, junior in 
construction science management, 
said. "She was always supportive." 

Hinshaw also supported the 
members' academic endeavors. 

"She took college classes this 
semester," Burkland said. "She 
understood the stress we were under, 
especially during finals." 

Members often depended on 
Hinshaw lor advice and counseling. 

"Mostly she helped out the 
younger people with problems with 
girlfriends, grades and questions 
about college," Burkland said. 

Hinshaw also did the house's 
meal planning and food budgeting. 

"She actually plans the meals," Burklund said. "The 
food has totally improved." 

When she was not in class or doing something for 
the house, Hinshaw studied. 

"Sometimes when I'm studying I hear feet stomping 
upstairs or a scream of anguish in the front hallway," she 
said. "I just keep studying. It is routine for there to be 
noise in the house." 

"Every time I heard 
them call me 4 Mom' it 
was so weird. Now that 
I am so used to the 
role, it is weird if I hear 
the name Dana."

postponing celebration, 

get ready for 75th 

yJ U Rv Sa rah Gai 

By Sarah Garner 

"Its all about having a 
brotherhood that goes 
back 75 years. Pm able 
to share that with a lot 
of other guys." 

Wes Hudelson 

senior in secondary education 

Their memories of brotherhood spanned 75 years. 
The Kansas Gamma chapter of Phi Delta Theta 
fraternity had memories of brotherhood that spanned 75 

Their 75th anniversary was Dec. 3 1 but the chapter 
postponed their anniversary celebration and planned to 
have it in fill 1996. 

Evan Howe, fraternity and K-State alumnus, said 

the chapter was considering an ongoing 75th, where not 

all classes of alumni visited at once 

but each class visited at separate 


Kevin Macfee, junior in 
accounting, said the anniversary 
celebration's postponement was due 
to members not planning lar enough 

"Evan kind of thought if we're 
going to do it we need to do it 
right," he said. "We just didn't plan 
enough. The person in charge of 
making all the arrangements is going 
to have a full-time job. It would 
have taken a full year to plan it and 
we didn't start soon enough." 

Some members were unhappy about the 
postponement of the anniversary celebration, Macfee 

"I'm disappointed but it was necessary," he said. 
"The seniors would have liked to have seen it happen 
while they were still here but I think they're all planning 
on coming back for it." 

Although the chapter had not yet celebrated the 
event, the anniversary was meaningful to members, 
Barton Vance, house president and senior in 

management, said. 

"Hopefully, this will instill the importance of our 
traditions in the younger guys," he said. "It makes me 
feel good to know we'll be leaving the house in good 
hands and they'll keep the traditions going." 

Wes Hudelson, alumni chairman and senior in 
secondary education, said the anniversary reminded him 
of Phi Delt's purpose. 

"It's all about having a brotherhood that goes back 
75 years," Hudelson said. "I'm able to share that with a 
lot of other guys. We've all been through the same things 
and have learned the same stuff. I've met guys who were 
members a long time ago and we could talk for hours 
because we shared this bond." 

Hudelson's family had a Phi Delt tradition. He said 
because of this family connection, he was more familiar 
with how the fraternity had changed and developed over 
the years. 

"I'm the fifth person to live here in my family," 
Hudelson said. "From the stories I've heard, it's changed 
a whole lot with hazing policies and everything." 

Howe said the anniversary was significant to alumni 
as well as to actives. 

"I never got to be real close to any people in the 
house a lot older or a lot younger than I am but we're 
all part of the same thing and there's a sense of unity," 
Howe said. "We're all proud to be part of an entity 
that has lasted so long and been maintained as the same 

Vance said the anniversary made him proud to be a 

"It brings a sense of unity and pride in the fraternity," 
he said. "It's a tradition we're proud of at K-State and 
we'd like to see it continue and move forward as it has 
in the past 75 years."

alumni buy 

Phi Tau's 

house for renovations 

By Sarah Garner 

Phi Kappa Tau alumni took matters in their own hands. 
The fraternity's basement was unusable due to water 
damage from the 1993 floods and the national council, 
which owned the house, would not help with repairs. 

"I started thinking about it when I went to the 
national convention in Washington , D . C .Jason was there 
with pictures of the house, and I saw how badly the house 
had gone downhill," Richard Schuetz, fraternity and K- 
State alumnus, said. 

Jason Sullivan, fraternity president and senior in 
management, said the national council had financial 
reasons for not helping the chapter. 

Alpha Epsilon was a small chapter and there were 
not enough members in the house for nationals to repair 
the damage, he said. 

It was difficult to attract new members with the 
house in poor repair and consequently, the fraternity 
faced declining membership, according to Schuetz. The 
alumni group he formed after the summer convention 
decided to purchase the house in March. 

"We decided to buy the house so that we could have 

more control and be more sensitive to the needs ot the 
house," Scheutz said. "We want to get the house out of 
the deplorable state of neglect it's in and bring it back to 
being a first-class house." 

Members were excited to get help from alumni, Jeff 
Winchell, senior in elementary education, said. 

"The alumni buying the house is probably the best 
thing to happen to the house in a long time," Winchell said. 

The Alpha Epsilon alumni became incorporated to 
legally take control of the house's title and mortgage. 

Sullivan said he hoped the alumni would be better 
about meeting the house's needs than the national council. 

"This will be good because the house will be locally 
owned and we'll be able to get renovations easier," he said. 

After buying the house, the Kansas-based corporation 
planned to sell it and purchase or build a new house. 

Winchell said he hoped the alumni interest would 
increase membership. 

"This will increase membership and alumni support," 
he said. "We haven't had alumni support since I've been 
here and I think that will strengthen the house a lot."

into the mud bowl 

"It was one of those 
learning experiences for 
the first year." 

John Benson 
senior in social sciences 

Wildlife in Tuttle Creek State Park stepped aside for 
their own benefit. 

The Phi Kappa Theta fraternity sponsored their first 
mud volleyball tournament, Mud Bowl, Sept. 16 at 
Tuttle Creek to raise money for Kansas 

Wildscape worked to preserve and 
enhance the state's wildlife and the 
outdoors, John Benson, fraternity 
president and senior in social sciences, 

The Phi Kaps decided to change 
philanthropies because ot a lack ot 

"Our philanthropy for the last few 
years had been a fun run," Brian Till, junior in architecture, 
said. "The interest in it had been waning, so we started 
planning the Mud Bowl." 

Due to a postponement of the tournament in the 
spring, some teams could not compete. 

"Originally we were going to hold it last April, but 
it got rained out and some of the original teams couldn't 
come do it in the fall," Benson said. 

The new philanthropy not only took time planning, 
but also required members to work during the event. 
The week before the tournament, members prepared 

By Sarah Kallenbach 

the courts for the games and while the games were being 
played, the Phi Kaps did what was necessary to make the 
event run smoothly. 

"On the day of the tournament we were DJs, 
referees and linesmen," Till said. "We all kept busy." 

The tournament was divided into men's and women's 
divisions and about 10-12 teams participated, Till said. 

Wass and Co., an independent team, placed first in 
the women's division and Alpha Delta Pi placed second. 
In the men's division, Phi Gamma Delta placed first and 
Sigma Phi Epsilon placed second. 

After t-shirt sales, food and trophy costs, Mud Bowl 
raised about $200 for Wildscape. 

"We probably spent more money than we made," 
Benson said. "It was one of those learning experiences 
for the first year." 

Corey Black, junior in construction science and 
management, said the tournament was successful, in 
spite of a few problems and forgotten details. 

"Anytime you try something new there are going to 
be some things that you don't expect — little things like 
trash bags for people to sit on in their cars," he said. 

The important thing was that Mud Bowl was fun for 
the participants and the fraternity, Black said. 

"I thought it went really well," he said. "We had a 
good turn out and people seemed to have a good time."

shortening the pledge program, 

Pi Phis 

By Chris Dean 


lthough a single person had not depledged, the Pi 
Beta Phi sorority had no pledges left by the end of the 
fall semester. 

Because of a decision by the national council, all Pi Phi 
chapters shortened their pledge programs, Kara Rogers, 
house president and senior in political science, said. 

"We are going to a shorter pledge program, but right 
now we are still in the experimental phases," she said. 
Rogers said the shorter program 
was an advantage tor the new 

"It is a benefit to the girls because 
they can participate earlier," she said. 
"We become a house as a whole taster." 
Because this was the first year the 
pledge program did not last an entire 
semester, the chapter decided to 
gradually shorten the program. Kam 
Kohlmeier, junior in marketing, said 
Jamie LOngrOVe t ) :c p r0 gram was shortened to 15 
junior in journalism and mass weeks and would eventually decrease 

communications to 1() wecl< s. 

"We've always [held initiation] at 
the end ofthe semester," she said. "Nationalsjust felt that 
this was something we needed to do." 

Kohlmeier said although the change was tor the 
better, it took time for the house to make the adjustments. 

"I think it comes naturally when you do something 
one way for so long and then change it. Of course people 
are going to be a little unsure at first," she said. "The pros 
are that we didn't lose one person to depledging this year. " 

Other Pi Phis agreed the shortened program was 

"We always finished betore Christmas break anyway, 
so the only thing we had to let lapse was the time span 
between the actual education and initiation," Nikki 

"Our new initiates 
proved that our ideals 
and our respect as 
sisters really came 

Wunder, junior in finance, said. 

Jamie Congrove, junior in journalism and mass 
communications, said older members were unsure how 
the shortened program worked. 

"There was a lot ol mixed opinion because some 
think that a semester (program) burns people out," she 
said. "I didn't like it at first because when it was a 
semester long, it made you feel like you earned the right 
and responsibilities of being a Pi Phi." 

Congrove said although she did not like it at first, the 
new pledge program worked well. 

"I was unsure how the shortened pledge program 
would go over because it is so important to understand 
the responsibilities of being a Pi Phi," she said. "Our 
new initiates proved that our ideals and our respect as 
sisters really came through in 15 weeks because they 
upheld our ideals." 

A shortened pledge program was not the only thing 
nationals handed the chapter. Rogers, Kohlmeier and 
Amy Wortman, senior in elementary education, picked 
up three national awards tor the chapter at a week-long 
national convention June 24-29 in Palm Springs, Calif. 

Rogers said they won awards for being one of the 
top Pi Phi chapters, having the best fraternity heritage 
and one ofthe top chapters in the past 10 years. 

The convention was rewarding for the individuals 
who attended, Rogers said. 

"It was veiy educational because it really shows the 
direction greeks are going," she said. "It's good because 
it makes you realize this isn't just something at K-State." 

Kohlmeier said the convention was worthwhile and 

"I wish people could see it," she said. "We worked 
from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. without breaks. It was a 
very tiring week, but it was exciting and I wish everyone 
in the house could go."

after a 10-year break, 


Pi Kaps 

return to the scene 

By Sarah Kallenbach & Maria Sherrill 

None of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity members could 
remember the last time they participated in 

It had been 10 years. 

"The most exciting part was just getting to do it," 
said Aaron Floersch, fraternity president and senior in 
management, said. "We've tried to do it and finally we 
got matched up last semester." 

In the spring, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Delta Chi, Phi 
Kappa Theta and the Pi Kapsjoined together to participate 
in Homecoming. 

Because of the long break from the event, members 
of the fraternity were ready to work. Aaron Green, 
senior in horticulture, participated in Homecoming 
festivities for the first time. 

"Homecoming gave us some great exposure and 
helped morale," Green said. "Everyone always gets 
down this time of year, but everyone was in a great mood 
and was willing to help out." 

But, the mood changed when their float was 
disqualified because it was not on campus or at a greek 
house for the judging. 

The group was also disqualified from the banner 

"Rumor was that we got disqualified because Willie 
the Wildcat was holding a tomahawk," Floersch said. 
"The judges thought that was politically incorrect." 

The disqualification of the float and the banner did 
not take away from the experience, Green said. 

"It didn't matter because it was all for fun," he said. 

Homecoming events helped get the Pi Kap name 
out on campus. 

"We had a lot of comments about our jackets and 
other houses expressed their sympathy about the banner 
and the float," C.W. Harper, sophomore in mechanical 
engineering, said. 

Fun mixed with hard work in preparation for the 
body building competition, Green said. The group 
didn't place in any Homecoming events, members 
ended the week with positive attitudes. 

"Everyone was freezing at Pant the Chant, but all the 
spirit they showed was great," Scott Kelly, freshman in 
kinesiology, said. "It was so cold and everyone showed

"It's pretty hard to

the way it was back 

Brad Anderson 
senior in industrial engineering 

After a one-year time out, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Phi 
Delta Theta resumed their football battle over a 
porcelain toilet. 

The 48th annual Flush Bowl competition between 
the SAEs and the Phi Delts included a kick-off party, 
football game, date party, all-university party and the 
crowning ot a Flush Bowl queen. 

The fraternities did not have 
Flush Bowl in 1994 because they 
had difficulty finding a place that 
would comply with Interfraternity 
Council regulations, Brad Anderson, 
senior in industrial engineering, said. 
"Everybody I know that was 
out there really enjoyed it," Matt 
Krull, sophomore in business 
administration, said. "It will keep 

Before resuming Flush Bowl, 
members talked with alumni about 
how the event used to rival 
Homecoming in popularity, Anderson said. 

"They were pretty excited to hear we were 

continuing it (Flush Bowl)," Anderson said. "It's pretty 

hard to start up a tradition like the way it was back then." 

Although the Oct. 13 game ended in a tie, the SAEs 

took home the trophy — a mounted porcelain toilet. 

"We were pretty excited to hold onto the throne," 

By Heather Hollingsworth 

Anderson said. "We displayed it in the living room lor 
about a week, but our housemom didn't like it so we put 
it in storage." 

The event began on Thursday when the fraternities 
asked sororities for queen nominees. There was also a 
kick-oft party at the SAE house. 

Friday night there was a date party at the Phi Delt 
house and the flag football game was Saturday at Blackj ack 
Hills Recreation Area. 

Flush Bowl players could not have played tor the K- 
State football team or their house intramural teams. 

"I don't think they wanted it to be that organized," 
Krull said. "They didn't want it to be the Phi Delt 
intramural team against the SAE intramural team." 

The game quickly became rough, he said. 

"It was a pretty unorganized, wild game," Krull said. 
"It started on the first play, a two-hand touch, and the 
rest of the game was tackle." 

The Flush Bowl queen, Sarah Dickason, sophomore 
in family studies and human services, was awarded a 
plunger during halftime. She was chosen based on her 
response to a series of questions and the crowd's response. 

"It just comes down to whoever comes up with the 
most clever line," Lance Huggins, sophomore in food 
sciences, said. 

Flush Bowl helped the SAEs and Phi Delts, who 
were Homecoming partners, get to know each other 
before Homecoming, Krull said.

remembering founders 

S i g m a j Kappa 

cements memories 

By Sarah Garner 

"I figured if my chil- 
dren ever came, they 
would see my name. It's 
going to be there for- 

Sarah Poe 

senior in elementary education 

The five original founders of Sigma Kappa sorority 
were engraved in Theta Tau chapter history. 
During the summer, a brick sidewalk engraved with 
the national and chapter founders' 
names and the founding date was 
constructed between the two sidewalks 
leading to the tront door of the Sigma 
Kappa house. 

Originally, the Founders' Walk 
was started to recognize the chapter's 
1990 Alpha pledge class. However, 
the house wasn't finished by the time 
more classes were pledged, so the 
housing corporation decided to include 
more recent pledge classes in the 
project, Sarah Poe, senior in elementary 
education, said. 

"This was planned from the 
beginning by the national council to show who 
founded the house," Karen Looney, Theta Tau 
founding member and K-State alumna, said. "It wasn't 
easy those first few years and this walk means a lot 
more to my pledge class than it probably does to those 
after us." 

The chapter was the only one with a walk of this 
kind, Amy Neises, senior in apparel and textile marketing, 

Members who pledged before spring 1994 had the 
opportunity to buy a brick. The individually purchased 
bricks were engraved with the purchaser's name and 
became a part of the walk, Neises said. 

Of approximately 125 chapter founders, 42 purchased 
bricks in the walk and 50 newer pledges also bought 
bricks. Each brick cost $50. 

"That just went to pay for the bricks to be engraved 
and for the walk to be put in," Melissa Darger, sophomore 
in social sciences, said. "That's why they cost that 

The walk, which cost $4,400, was built to preserve 
the sorority's history. 

"It'sjust to remind us that we're the ones who made 
Sigma Kappa what it is at K-State," Darger said. "It will 
be exciting because when I come back in 30 years I'll see 
my name." 

Poe said she bought a brick in the walk to show she 
had a part in the beginning of the chapter. 

"I figured if my children ever came back, they would 
see my name," she said. "It's going to be there forever." 

The walk was meaningful to the chapter's first 
members, Looney said. 

"The walk means a great deal to the founders of the 
chapter. We fought hard to have it put in," she said. "To 
have it in stone that we're at K-State and we're here to 
stay is very important to us."

By Heather 

Members of the Sigma Lambda Gamma sorority and the 
Sigma Lambda Beta fraternity focused on the future. 
"The focus is off trying to legitimize the sorority," 
Debra Bratina, Sigma Lambda Gamma president and senior 
in education, said. "We are trying to establish ourselves as 
an organization that is here to stay." 

Sigma Lambda Gamma received their charter in fall 
1994 and Sigma Lambda Beta received their charter in 
spring 1995. The move from earning their charters to 
building strong foundations was challenging for the Hispanic 

"When we were (establishing the 
chapter) we were real busy," Santos 
Jose Ramirez, Sigma Lambda Beta 
president and junior in political 
science, said. "It kept us busy and 
now it's like we've got that all done 
and we're focusing on what we can 
do next." 

The members of Sigma Lambda 
Beta said they looked forward to 
becoming a part of their chapter's 

"It was a lot of hard work," 
Ramirez said, "and I am excited because I know that we 
will be in our history here at K-State forever." 

He said the fraternity hoped to start a Hispanic scholarship 
fund and increase their numbers. 

"Our traditions are more focused on community services 
and trying to help out Hispanics on campus and offer a 
support group," Ramirez said. 

Making traditions for the sorority was an enormous 
responsibility, Bemtajackson, freshman in pre-health, said. 
"Most other sororities have it in stone how their 
pledges go through the process," she said. 

Focusing on the future meant involvement in 

"It's an educational 
experience for everyone 
involved. By interacting 
with students, we break 
down stereotypes."

Panhellenic Council and the Interfraternity council. 

"Now we are a part of the greek scene but we are still 
very new and learning," Bratina said. "If you want to 
make a difference, this is where to do it." 

Sigma Lambda Gamma joined Panhellenic Council 
in fall 1995 but the newness of the sorority and small 
numbers, 1 1 members, made participating in traditional 
greek events challenging. 

The Sigma Lambda Gammas were paired with their 
brother fraternity, Sigma Lambda Beta, for Homecoming 
activities. Because the combined group was only about 
40 people, they were unable to participate in traditional 
greek Homecoming activities. 

"We wanted to become involved in Homecoming 
but it's hard because of numbers," Jeannette Torres, 
junior in modern languages, said. "It takes a lot of 
planning ahead of time." 

The group placed emphasis on completing 
smaller projects and building on those successes, Bratina 

"We have to complete the projects we take on. 
If we don't, it sends out the message we aren't reliable," 
she said. "We have to take baby steps. Eventually, the big 
projects will come our ■way." 

Small numbers also caused problems for members of 
Sigma Lambda Beta, who had not yet joined the 
Interfraternity Council. 

"It's hard for us to do stuff with the other fraternities 
because they're so big and we're so small," Ramirez said. 
"We're still going (to IFC meetings) on a trial basis to see 
what benefits they can give us or we can give to them." 

Both groups placed emphasis on helping Hispanic 
students succeed. 

"It's an educational experience for everyone 
involved," Bratina said. "By interacting with other 
students, we break down stereotypes."

pledge against pledge 

By J.J. K u n t z 

Head-to-head competition gave greek organizations a 
chance to show off their pledges. 

Sigma Nu and Chi Omega's Pledge Games Sept. 24 
was an outdoor competition for new fraternity and 
sorority members. 

"It was basically like a track meet, " Tyson Needham, 
Sigma Nu philanthropy chairman and junior in business 
administration, said. "There was a 100-meter dash, 400- 
meter relay, softball toss, javelin throw andtug-of-war." 

To create opportunities to involve each participant, 
planning lor Pledge Games began in the spring, Brent 
Johnson, house president and senior in architectural 
engineering, said. 

"There are a few things that changed this year," 
Needham said. "We shortened up the games. In the past 
we wouldn't get finished until five or six. This year we 
cut out the final events and finished by early afternoon." 

During August, members sent entry forms to houses, 
collected money and took t-shirt orders. 

"The Chi Os helped with the t-shirt design, sponsors 
and the actual running of the event," Johnson said. 

Most ot the money was made through t-shirt sales, 
Needham said. 

"We took in over $ 1 1 ,000 and donated approximately 
$5,600 to the area Red Cross after expenses were taken 
out," he said. 

Each house paid a $75 entry fee to participate in 
Pledge Games. It was the largest money-making 
philanthropy on campus, but it did not raise as much 


money as it had in the past, Needham said. 

"I think too many things added to us not making as 
much money this year," he said. "It was a little bit less than 
what we made last year because we didn't sell as many 
shirts and we used more money to purchase prizes." 

Participants collected points when 
they won an event and the houses that 
finished with the most points won prizes. 

Alpha Chi Omega and Tau Kappa 
Epsilon won Pledge Games. 

One event required participants to 
compete with the money in their pockets 
instead of in a physical activity. 

"We hold a Mr. and Miss Pledge 
Games pageant," Needham said. "The 
pageant is an added money-maker that 
has become really big in the sororities 
and has created some stiff competition." 

Each house nominated a candidate 
from their pledge class and students voted for their favorite 
candidate by putting money in cups placed in the K-State 
Student Union. The male and female candidates who 
collected the most money won the titles. 

Needham said every house participated in Pledge 

"I thought the games were well-run and I had a great 
time," Gavin Vaughn, freshman in biology, said. "The best 
part was that there were so many people there and it was a 
great way to meet them through healthy competition." 

I'd say that it was 
some fairly healthy 
competition and you 
didn't have to he good 
to have fun."

resuming tradition, the 

Sig Ep's 

zappadeli returns 

XX ByAmySmit 

By Amy Smith 

It was the return of the Zappa Deli. 
Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity members resumed years 
of tradition when they rebuilt their late-night hang out. 

The Zappa Deli tradition began in 1985. 

"A couple of guys a few years ago lived downstairs," 
Kevin Murdock, junior in park resources management, 
said. "They used to come home from the bars, sit 
downstairs and make sandwiches, listen to Frank Zappa 
and sell the sandwiches to people late at night coming 
home trom the bars." 

The room was called the Zappa Deli from then on, 
Murdock said. 

The Zappa grew in popularity and was moved into 
the previous Sig Ep chapter room in 1986, he said. 

"It had turned into an after-hours place where Sig 
Eps would bring their friends over to drink after the bars 
closed at two," Dan Brooks, senior in education, said. 
"Nationals didn't want Sig Ep to have that image so they 
tore the Zappa room down." 

The room was closed in 1992 and rebuilt during 
summer 1995, Brooks said. 

The new Zappa Deli was a recreational room with 
an electronic dart board, pool table, stereo, a counter and 
two couches, Murdock said. Sometimes the room was 
used for parties where, behind the counter, troughs for 
beer taps were set up. 

"The first Zappa room looked like a night club 
because it was so dark. It was only lit with bar lights," 
Brooks said. "It's a totally different atmosphere now. It's 
lit with fluorescent lights now, but I think in time the 
atmosphere will be more like it used to be." 

The renovations, financed by parents, were done by 
Sig Ep members, Murdock said. 

"Money from our Dad's Weekend auction goes to 
our Mom's Club. Whatever the money goes towards for 

our house is decided by the Mom's Club," he said. 
"They asked us what we wanted and we voted on the 
electronic dart board and the pool table." 

Although members did not know the originators of 
the Zappa, the traditions used to be taught to new 

"As a pledge I remember having to read a small essay 
on the Zappa that was in the pledge 
book," Brooks said. 

An entire wall of the Zappa Deli 
was saved for members to sign on the 
reopening night in September. 

"It was something we did to 
remember the first party in the new 
room, kind of like a christening," 
Murdock said. "All members who 
attended the party signed the wall." 

Members also had a mural of 
Zappa that covered an entire wall of 
the renovated room, Murdock said. 

"At the Frank Zappa Returns party 
a member dressed like Frank Zappa and showed up in 
a limo with body guards," Tucker Pierce, senior in 
education, said. "Also, we all dressed in 70s clothes 
and signed the wall." 

Members saw the Zappa as more than a party room, 
Pierce said. 

"I think it's helped the house a lot because it gives us 
a place to go instead of being in the individual rooms or 
going to Aggieville," he said. "Especially for us out-of- 
house guys, it gives us a place to see the in-house guys." 

The Sig Eps were not worried about the Zappa Deli 
being torn down again. 

"It will last forever if we take care of it because the 
house is proud of it," Pierce said.

Returns party a member

policy changes give 

Tr i -S i gs 

a reason to party 

X Bv I I^Aii 

By J.jVKuntz 

A change in policy made parties safer and more fun for 
the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. 

During fall 1994, discussion began about changing 
the sorority's national alcohol policy that prohibited 
consumption of alcohol at functions, Becki Blankenship, 
house president and junior in education, said. 

"We didn't think it (allowing drinking at functions) 
was going to happen but when it did, we were very 
excited," she said. "We have a lot of high rules to follow 
now but I think they felt we were responsible enough." 

The Delta Phi chapter received information from 
another chapter looking for interest in changing the 
national dry-house policy, Cindy Moen, junior in 
elementary education, said. 

"A Tri Sigma sorority in Louisiana sent out letters 
about the problems with pre-partying and the need for 
designated drivers," Megan Morehead, junior in 
elementary education, said. "They recognized the need 
to move with the times." 

The dry-house policy was instated tor all Tri Sigma 
chapters during the '80s, Morehead said. 

"I think it was established for reasons ot liability," 
she said. "There were also hopes to lower the risks 
associated with alcohol." 

The new alcohol policy, permitting consumption at 
functions, was passed in June during the Tri Sigma 
national convention. 

" I think we were the only ones that were a dry house 
and had allowed no drinking at parties," Moen said. 

"Changing our policy has made us more equal to the 
other houses." 

The new policy required each chapter to submit an 
outline of all planned social events to the national 
headquarters, one month in advance. The policy change 
also required extra precautions to be taken. 

"It will cost us more money and getting police and 
designated drivers for the functions may 
be a pain," Morehead said. "It's better 
than not doing anything about the 
problem at all." 

The first party affected by the policy 
was in the spring semester, Moen said. 

"I think it will be ultimately better, 
eliminating the pre-partying and making 
us less liable," Morehead said. "There 
was some pre-partying that went on and 
now I don't think as much of it will. Our 
parties will also be a lot safer since people 
will not be tempted with driving." 

Members oflegal drinking age could 
stay at parties and drink without leaving tor alcohol, 
Morehead said. Because of the new policy, more members 
would stay longer at parties. 

"I think sororities and fraternities are associated with 
alcohol, so there is always some drinking that goes on 
through pre-partying," Morehead said. "Now that we 
are allowed to have alcohol, I think we will become 
more responsible about it." 

"We have a lot of 
high rules to follow now 
but I think they felt we 
were responsible

coaching powder puff,

women to puff bowl 

Uniting for the first time in an old tradition, 1 1 
sororities participated in a knock-down, drag-out 
race to the Puff Bowl. 

This was the first year all 1 1 sororities were involved 
in the Tau Kappa Epsilon Powder Pufr Tournament, 
Justin Mitchell, house president and junior in chemical 
engineering, said. 

"In the past, some sororities had not been involved 
for different reasons but this year we had 100 percent 
participation," Mitchell said. 

Preston Barton, junior in accounting, said the 
increased involvement was because fraternity members 
were more excited than in previous years. 

"I think this year we were just more enthusiastic 
about advertising it and it has paid off," he said. "We've 
just been trying harder to get everyone involved. When 
someone is missing, it is just not as run." 

Towards the end ol the spring semester, TKE 
members visited all the sororities, recruiting teams for 
the powder puff program. 

"We went around to all the houses earlier than usual 
and we gave them each a book about all the teams from 
the year before and they signed up within their house to 
become involved," Kurt McGuffin, senior in secondary 
education, said. 

After the sororities organized teams, TKE members 
divided into groups of three or four to coach the different

teams. Remaining members officiated the games, which 
took place at Griffith Park the first eight weeks of the fall 

"I think sororities like doing it because it lasts for 
eight weeks and is not just a weekend 
thing," McGuffin said. "We're very 
fortunate that sororities take time to 
donate their money and time to our 

The tournament, which had been 
a tradition as long as the TKEs could 
remember, raised about $2,000 for their 
philanthropy, the Special Olympics. 

Barton said he was also impressed 
with the way the women played. 

"The thing that is really impressive 
is how competitive the girls are," 
Barton, Pi Beta Phi coach, said. 
"Because they don't really have a 
football background, it takes a while 
for them to learn at the start but they 
really get into it." 

At the end of the season, the Gamma Phi Beta team 
beat the Sigma Kappa team for first place in the final 
game, the Puff Bowl. 

"Ever since powder puff started it has been 
something everyone has supported," Barton said. "It's 
something we take pride in and get excited about."

tangled and twisted 

Vy By Sarah Kallenbacf 

Tangled arms and legs helped the Theta Xi fraternity- 
raise money for Habitat tor Humanity and keep 
Manhattan High School students from drinking on 
graduation night. 

"Manhattan High contacted me about playing Twister 
at their graduation party," Toby Rush, junior in 
mechanical engineering, said. 

For their party graduation night, the graduates went 
to Ahearn Field House where the Theta Xis had set up 
the Twister game. 

"We played twister with the graduates to keep them 
from drinking," Rush said. "I didn't know how much 
they would get into it, but it was fun." 

The fun began three years ago when the fraternity 
decided to try a new philanthropy — Twistermania. 

"We wanted to do something new and different," 
Chris Hansen, fraternity president and junior in nuclear 
engineering, said. "The philanthropy market is a saturated 

Twistermania, an all-greek philanthropy, was annually 

scheduled for spring. The Theta Xi's portion of the 
proceeds benefited Habitat for Humanity and the rest of 
the money went to the sorority which 
co-sponsored the event. 

"We tape 50 mats together and make 
a huge square," Chad Long, junior in 
pre-medicine, said. "We have a dial and 
just get as many people out there as 

Rush said the fraternity added to the 
event every year. 

"There was always room to improve 
— always needing more participation 
and providing enough entertainment 
for those who get out," he said. 

Long said Twistermania was one 
way for the fraternity to become involved 
in the community and have a good time. 

"We want to raise a lot of money and raise awareness 
about our philanthropy and have lots of fun," Long said.

\J By J.J. Kuntz &jH eather Hollingsworth 

Despite pressures of small numbers and economic 
strains, members fought to rebuild Triangle fraternity. 

"Things happened this year, morale is up and we've 
had three parties we thought were really good," Zac 
Bailey, senior in biological and agricultural engineering, 
said. "We got everyone involved this year and excited 
about doing things together as a house." 

Alumni and members came up with a number of 
men they hoped to have living in house next fall, Jeff 
Geist, senior in geology, said. 

"We need to have 20 guys in the house next fill to 
pay the bills," Bailey said. "If we can meet them (goals), 
it's a good indication we will be able to do things we 
need to be successful." 

Triangle's financial burdens hurt them because they 
did not have many members living in the house, Geist 

New leadership helped increase involvement and 
excitement among Triangle members. 

"When my pledge brothers and I came in, we said we 
wanted to make some changes," Tim Danner, rush 

chairman and junior in architectural engineering, said. 
"We are trying to get ourselves to a better status." 

Fraternity members thought they would have enough 
live-in members in the future but attaining their goals 
meant attracting pledges, Bailey said. 
He said members knew what needed to 
be done to keep the fraternity alive. 

"We would like to see 25 to 30 guys 
in the house, be more active in 
intramurals and events on campus," he 

Although they hoped to recruit 
members interested in becoming 
involved and living in the house, the 
physical house was not as important to 
the members as staying together. 

"The house is just an object and the chapter will 
exist," Danner, said. "It (losing the house) would give us 
a chance to regather ourselves and regroup, to kind of 
have a fresh start and come back in a couple of years 
stronger than ever." 

"The house is just an 
object and the chapter

celebrating winter holidays, 

parties with santa 

X By Chris Dear 


"Having Santa at a 
dorm party was 
kind of goofy, but a lot 
of people liked it." 

Jared Bohndorf 
junior in technology management 

They may have been too big to sit on Santa's lap but 
that did not stop residents of K-State Salina's residence 
hall from getting their pictures taken with him. 

The Salina residence hall had a 
Christmas party for its residents Dec. 
10. Roger Steinbrock, admissions 
representative at K-State Salina, dressed 
as Santa Claus and made an appearance 
at the party. 

"Having Santa at a college dorm 
party was kind ol goofy but a lot of 
people liked it," Jared Bohndorf, junior 
in technology management, said. 

Santa's visit was not the only surprise 

residents received at the Christmas party. 

"After Thanksgiving break we sent letters to all the 

residents' parents and asked them to send us a $5 gift for 

their child," Jake Greenup, director of student life at K- 

State Salina, said. 

Greenup said all but 15 to 20 parents sent in gifts. The 
students without gifts from their parents were given a 
small K-State jar filled with candy. 


Students appreciated that the presents were from 
their families. 

"It was good to have the parents send in presents 
because kids didn't just get something dorky but actually 
something they might have wanted," Toby Ceselski, 
junior in computer science technology, said. 

After opening gifts, the residents sang carols. 

"The caroling was really unique because it's hard to 
get 90 people to sing Christmas carols," Sharon Niehues, 
sophomore in computer and information sciences, said. 

Greenup estimated that of the 90 people in the hall 
about 65 attended the party. 

"There was a pretty big turnout because they said 
everyone would get something and they had free food," 
Bohndorf said. 

Ian Sammis, junior in mechanical engineering 
technology, said he enjoyed the party because he had not 
expected the gifts. 

"They didn't tell anyone about the gifts. They just 
put up posters announcing there was going to be free 
food at a Christmas party," he said. "I had no idea about 
the presents so it was a neat surprise."

They decorated with what most 
people would consider trash. 
Empty beer bottles and 
Party Balls did not always go into the 
trash can. They were sometimes used 
as apartment decorations. 

Chris Bloom, junior in 
construction science and 
management, said he and his 
roommates started taking beer bottles 
home from bars and turned them 
into permanent fixtures. 

"We've just got a great place for 


the stuff," he said. "We put our beer 
bottles on a shelf and we also have a 
Party Ball made into a swag lamp 

Rob Cox, sophomore in hotel 
and restaurant management, said he 
and his three roommates began 
bringing bottles home with the idea 
of creating a collection. 

"We thought it would be neat to 
have a bottle of everything," Cox 
said. "We're still working on that." 

Lonnie Johnston, Dean's Liquor 
employee and senior in accounting, 
said he and his roommates began 
collecting different beer bottles 
without an objective. 

"We have eight shelves built 
into the wall where we put the 
bottles," he said. "We've been 
collecting since August and our goal 
has become to 2,et a certain number 
of beers from each country." 

Johnston estimated he and his 


by sarah garner 

roommates had collected 90 bottles. 

"The cost would average out to 
be probably about a dollar a bottle, 
so I'd say there's well over a hundred 
dollars m the collection," Johnston 
said. "The most expensive bottle 
was six dollars." 

Bruce Kinney, Cox's roommate 
and sophomore in business 
administration, said they had about 
30 hard liquor and beer bottles 

Johnston said he and his 
roommates only 
collected beer 
p a r a p h e r n a 1 1 a 
because there were so many different 
beer brands. 

"I have a great big St. Pauli girl 
standing in my living room," he 
said. "We have a lot of displays and 
posters and two neon signs. We 
don't keep Party Balls but we do 
have a wall of five empty kegs. We 
keep them so we don't have to leave 
a deposit when we go to get kegs." 

The alcohol bottles were 
conversation starters, Bloom said. 

"Most people look at all the 
bottles when they come over," he 
said. "When they see a unique brand 
they've never heard of, they_want to 
know where they can get it." 

Empty alcohol bottles were inter- 
esting items to collect, Johnston said. 

"I think it's a neat thing to do 
while you're in college," he said. "I 
don't know what I'll do with the 
collection when I leave. Somebody 
will definitely have to inherit it." 

Lonnie Johnston, senior in accounting, sits in front of 
his beer bottle collection. Johnston and his roommates 
tried to collect a certain number of bottles from each 
country. They kept their collection in a set of built- 
in book shelves. 

Johnston, an employee of Dean's Liquor, had several 
posters and alcohol displays such as the cut-out of the 
St. Pauli girl. He also owned neon beer signs and a wall 
of empty kegs.

off-campus students discovered 

■advantages toi 

Man tag e s toi , | 
g with parents 

Vy m> By Sarah Garne 

Part of going to college was living with Mom and 
Dad, at least for some students. 

Remaining under their parents' roof while attending 
college could be advantageous. 

"I decided to live at home," Mandy Springer, 
freshman in kinesiology, said. "I thought it was stupid to 
pay to live in the dorms and belong to the (sorority) 
house when I lived in Manhattan already." 

Tammy Linenberger, junior in pre-occupational 
therapy, discovered living at home had advantages. 

"I'm from Manhattan, so it's just more convenient. 
I'm applying to occupational therapy school in the fall, 
too," she said. "I might be living in another state soon, 
so I'll need the money I have saved." 

Linenberger said she planned to live in her sorority 
spring semester to get a taste of living away from home. 

"I like living at home, but I feel like I'm ready to 
move out on my own," she said. "I'm ready to try 
things on my own and I need to do it before I move to 
another state and I'm totally on my own." 

Eric Beikmann, freshman in secondary education, 
said his parents suggested he live at home his first year 
of college or they would not provide as much financial 
support. Living at home helped him adapt to college. 

"For the first year, living at home helped me to 
adjust," Beikmann said. "It was easier to adjust to 
college because I didn't have to face all the changes at 

Beikmann said it was more difficult to concentrate 
when studying at home. 

"It's harder to study because there are so many 
distractions," he said. "It's not as easy to just leave and 
go to the library or someplace else." 

For Linenberger, studying at home was convenient 
because people did not bother her and break her 

"It's nice because it's quiet when I want to study," 
she said. "It's also private because I have my own 

By Sarah Garner 

Beikmann, who planned to live in a fraternity house 
in fall 1996, said living at home had social drawbacks. 

"Overall it's fun, but I don't get to interact with a lot 
ol people like I would in a dorm or a fraternity because 
I don't live with a lot of people," he said. 

Springer said she sometimes found living away from 
campus inconvenient . She planned to live in her sorority 
in fall 1996. 

"It's hard not living close to campus and trying to 
find a parking spot and if I want to see 
my friends I have to drive to the dorms 
on campus," she said. "Sometimes I 
think it would be nice if we had the 
money for me to live in the dorms, but 
even if we did, I don't know if I would 
because I don't think I could live like 

Although they lived at home with 
their parents, Springer and Linenberger 
said their mothers did not always do 
their laundry or cook for them. 

" I do my own laundry ," Linenberger 
said. "My mom doesn't cook very often. 
She'll cook supper when we're there, 
but we usually make our own lunch." 

She said her parents were usually 
understanding about her social life but 
she still had to follow some rules. 

"If a lot of my friends are going out on a Thursday 
night, I really can't," she said. "My parents have guidelines 
I have to follow." 

Springer did not have the same problems with her 

"My parents are real lenient," she said. "I don't have 
a curfew and all my friends like to come out here to visit. 
I can stay at people's houses on weekends and my parents 
don't care. They don't care if people stay here either. I 
have the same freedom as in an apartment or a dorm, I 
just don't pay the money." 

"For the first year, 
living at home helped 
me to adjust. It was 
easier to adjust to 
college because I didn't 
have to face all the 
changes at once."

need for education forces

brave the highway

Inside her car, the radio was tuned to National Public 
Radio for a daily news update. 
"It is my only chance to get the news," Patrice 
Lewerenz, Salina resident and senior in geology, said. "I 
was able to start my day with some idea ot life on the 

To receive an education commuters made the daily 

drive to Manhattan. 

"The gas is very 
expensive," Wanda 
Gattshall, Ahilene 
resident and senior in 
life sciences, said. "It 
cost me about $100 a 
month at least." 

To help make 
commuting more 
affordable, Lewerenz 
car pooled each 

"I have a fairly fuel- 
efficient car," she said. 
"Alternating times that 
I drove also helped to 
mitigate the cost." 

Adult Student 

Services helped find 

commuters car-pooling partners. Nancy Bolsen, director 

of Adult Student Services, said during the tall semester 

their office found 14 students commuting partners. 

"If they are in the same class it makes the ride 
beneficial," Lewerenz said. "We would read to each 
other or discuss the class." 

Although she had not calculated her hours spent on 
the highway, Lewerenz said she would probably be 
amazed at the time she lost to commuting. 

"It is hundreds of hours," she said. "Just for the 

winter intercession I spent 20 hours on the highway." 

The furthest distances students traveled were from 

jtudents from as far away as Hugoton, 314 miles 
away from Manhattan, commuted back and forth 
from K-State on a daily basis. (Photo Illustration 
by Darren Whitley) 


Hugoton, 314 miles away from Manhattan, and Scott City, 
261 miles away, Bolsen said. 

Because they could not quickly run home if they forgot 
something for a class, students who commuted had to be 

"I have only left a report at home once," Thomas said. 
"It wasn't a problem because I faxed the paper to the 

Some problems were out of commuters' control. 

"The weather can be a real pain," Lewerenz said. "It 
took me one hour just to get to the interstate to drive to 
Salma. There were a few people in the ditch." 

Gattshall said car trouble was more hindering than the 

"I had to come home in between classes so my husband 
could work on my car," she said. "I didn't miss any classes 
but it was an inconvenience." 

Commuters faced daily hassles and inconveniences 
other students were unaware of. 

"I don't think people understand the stress o£ 
commuting," Gattshall said. "I have to make sacrifices to 
get an education." 

One mile from Abilene, Lewerenz's car broke down 
while she was on her way home from an evening test. 

"It was dark, rainy and cold," she said. "I walked to the 
exit where there is a Dairy Queen and called my husband." 

Students who commuted had to forfeit sleep and time 
spent with their families. Alice Thomas, Abilene resident 
and senior in family studies and human services, said she 
chose to commute instead ot move to Manhattan because 
Abilene's cost ot living was lower. 

"It (commuting) takes a couple extra hours out ot my 
day — up by 5 a.m. and to bed between 1 ( ) and midnight," 
she said. 

Thomas said her only choice was to commute not only 
to receive an education but also to become a role model to 
family members. 

"I like to think I'm an inspiration to my grandchildren 
— that their grandmother is going back to school, "she said.

Tequila lime chicken was usually only served in fine 
restaurants but one student prepared it in his own 

"My favorite concoction that I have come up with 
is tequila lime chicken," Jordan Kidd, senior in 
construction science and management, said. "I just add 
a splash of tequila, a bit of lemon juice and a splash of 
Tabasco sauce." 

Off-campus students took time to cook the meals 
they enjoyed. 

"My favorite dish is chicken with white wine sauce 
on curried rice," Chris Richmond, graduate student in 
music, said. "It takes about an hour to prepare." 

Student cooks shared their gourmet dishes with 

"The past Christmas I cooked a pot ol chicken 
frittata for a party," Richmond said. "My girlfriend 
always says 'So what are you going to cook for me?' 

Kidd and Jill Conrad, sophomore in elementary 
education, said they liked to spend time cooking with 
their roommates. 

"More often we cooked for ourselves," Conrad 
said. "When our schedules allowed it we cooked together 
and it was a lot of fun." 

Student cooks prepared meals in different ways. 
Some students experimented with ingredients to satisfy 
their own taste buds. 

"I usually cook through trial and error," Kidd said. 
"It is fun to experiment and trade advice on spices with 
my roommates." 

Conrad said she cooked with her mom at home, 
which helped her learn to prepare meals on her own.

"My favorite is an enchilada dish," she said. "I got 
that recipe from my mom but most of the time I just try 
to wing it without recipes." 

Trial and error cooking was not the right process for 
everyone. Recipes were more dependable and did not 
require as much cooking knowledge. 

"It is easy to cook with recipes," 
Richmond said. "I just pick a 
cookbook and read the ingredients. " 

The internet was one source 
that provided him with recipes. 

"I tound a whole mess ot 
cooking sites on the internet," 
Richmond said. "I found pasta with 
shrimp and artichokes last week that 
I am going to cook tonight." 

Leftovers provided student 
cooks with an easy way to save time and money. 

"I make homemade macaroni and cheese and other 
casseroles that are good to eat as leftovers," Conrad said. 
"I just freeze them and heat them up for another meal." 

She said it was less expensive to cook a meal than to 
eat at a restaurant. 

"When I splurge and go out to eat, I think of all the 
groceries I could have bought," she said. "I'm not quite 
sure how much I save, but I know it (cooking) is 

Kidd said he chose to cook his meals because it was 
healthier than eating fast food. 

"I spent about $30 a week on groceries," he said. 
"Personally, I think it is better to eat right than to pinch

Students who furnished their apartments and residence 
hall rooms with items from the dining centers cost the 
Department of Housing and Dining Services thousands 
of dollars. 

"We don't really have any hard and last figures on 
theft but I think we can get a fairly good estimate based 
on how much we break and how much more we 
replace," Mark Edwards, Derby Food Center unit 
director, said. 

Replacing silverware and china cost between $ 1 2,000 
and $14,000 in 1995, John Pence, director of dining 
services, said. 

"I would hope the majority is accounted for by 
breakage but it is really hard to say," he said. 

First-time apartment residents frequently dined on 
stolen tableware from the dining centers. 

"We have a complete kitchen utensil set (from the 
dining center) — plates, bowls, spoons — everything 
short of the trays," Jeremy Smith, first year apartment 
resident and junior in electrical engineering, said. "Last 
year we were trying to decide how we would come up 
with all the stuff needed to live in an apartment. We saw 
a valuable commodity at our fingertips and lo' and 
behold we came up with some silverware." 

The theft and breakage added up. In 1995, Housing 
and Dining Services replaced about 1,200 dinner plates, 
1 ,200 soup bowls and 3,000 pieces of silverware, Edwards 

To replace a table setting — dinner plate, vegetable 
dish, cereal bowl, coffee cup, tea saucer, dessert plate and 
silverware — cost about $20, Edwards said. 

Pence said he had encountered stolen dining center 
goods outside the residence hall setting. 

"I can tell you I have seen our dinnerware out at 
students' apartments. I have seen it for sale at garage sales 
and I have gone to garage sales and seen it there and I 
have told them that I am going to take it because it 
doesn't belong to them," Pence said. "I guess what I 
can't imagine is why would anyone want to eat off of it? 
I mean it's heavy commercial china." 

Students short on cash were not bothered by dining 
on the heavy china. 

"We have silverware — spoons, forks and knives — 
and salt and pepper shakers (from Derby)," Mike Dunn, 
junior in business administration, said. "It helps save us 
from doing dishes." 

"We have a complete 
kitchen utensil set —

Silverware theft preparations were minimal and 
profitable, Dunn said. 

"Wear something with pockets in it, like a pullover," 
he said. "Then you put it in the pockets and leave." 

Smuggled goods became a sign of victory for student 

"I think it's kind of a challenge. You go down to 
these bars and they have these glasses with their names 
on them or something," Pence said. "Kids try and figure 
out a way to get them out of there, you know, for 

Edwards agreed silverware theft was not an issue 
unique to Housing and Dining Services. 

"I think probably the restaurant industry in general 
experiences that problem," Edwards 
said. "Those red plastic tumblers from 
Pizza Hut are kind of a trademark 
thing. You see those all over the place. " 

China theft from the dining centers 
was on the decrease, Pence said. 

"It used to be a complete place plateS, DOWlS, SpOOHS 
setting for every student every year," 
Pence said. "I think now we are doing 
less than that. I think it's like 50 percent 
(replacement rate)." 

Officials had considered banning 
backpacks from the dining centers. 

"One of the preventative measures 
we will look at in the future is to have 
a rule where backpacks have to be checked at the door 
or downstairs," Edwards said. 

Housing and Dining Services attempted to recover 
stolen items at the end of the year by placing boxes for 
the china and silverware in hall lobbies. 

"We get the boxes pretty well filled up with stuff the 
kids have just taken over there," Edwards said. "I don't 
think in their minds they see that as theft." 

Plates and china 'were not the only commodities 
stolen from Housing and Dining Services. 

An empty fish tank prompted Jodi Mathews, 
sophomore in business administration, to take matters 
into her own hands and fill it. 

"I was sitting in the lobby of the dorm and was telling 
my friend how we had a fish tank in our room without 
any fish and then it was like a call from God — there was 
a fish tank behind me," she said.
